    This is a must see if you are in the area, the whole staff are soooo knowledgeable of all in this museum and very friendly. The items on display are second to none. Saw 4 medal of Honor receipts in one place heart breaking stories of real American Hero's! Go see this place if you get the chance, won't be disappointed.

    Free museum honoring and recognizing Wisconsin's veterans. Great artifacts on display from weapons to uniforms. Some outstanding full sized dioramas depicting various eras in Wisconsin's military past. The gift shop has some nice items that would be difficult to find elsewhere, as well as a vast collection of books for sale. An hour or two would be well spent. I'd love to see the museum relocate to a larger location to display more of what must be a vast collection.

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.
