  • One of my favorite museum's in the Midwest. It's filled with cool information and lots of things to see and touch. Best of all it's free and right in the capitol square. A must see. Don't miss this important historical monument to those who sacrificed.
  • Great museum the amount of information and stories they have gives everyone a little better understanding of our veterans. They have many artifacts and stories from every major conflict I would recommend this museum for a family or anyone spending time in the Madison area.
  • What a hidden gem of a museum! I had no idea this little spot even existed until we spotted it while at the Taste of Madison.The museum itself is small (2-3 large sized rooms), and admission is free, making this an awesome spot to kill an hour if you're in the capital area.
  • Great free museum on first floor. Takes a little over an hour to see and read the exhibits. Lots of interesting personal items and stories of Wisconsin veterans.
  • Very nice little museum and the lady named Ellen at the front desk was very nice and helpful
