The Madison Children’s Museum is an award-winning destination for fun family activities and hands-on learning! Visit their inventive city of Possible-opolis for ages 5 and up, and the four-season Rooftop Ramble, replete with animals and gardens. Run on the human-sized Gerbil Wheel, or take a green tour to see the reclaimed materials that have found new life.

There’s always something new to do at the Madison Children’s Museum, where their mission is to connect children with their families, their communities, and the world beyond through discovery learning and creative play.
