  • A great tour was given to our 8th grade students. Our female tour guide was very informative on facts about Wisconsin and her presentations were engaging for our students.
  • Set up nice and family friendly. Displays actually keep your kid's attention.
  • Very nice museum not too big so little kids don't get bored.
  • A pretty cool place for the whole family. I wish it were just a little bigger but it's lots of fun.
  • Very nice staffs. Very helpful. Although the display is not very special, still a nice place to go

Where to stay in Madison

The university and state politics draw a constant stream of visitors to Madison, so you'll find a wide range of accommodations in the city. Numerous hotels circle the campus, and some of these overlook Lake Mendota. Moving onto the isthmus between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona, you'll find a handful of charming inns and bed and breakfasts, most of which offer panoramic views of the water. Areas south of Lake Monona feature national chain hotels and motels. These sit farther away from the action around campus and the State Capitol Building, but they can also offer water views and quiet settings near some of Madison's many parks.
