When you visit Madison, you'll quickly discover it is a place where the performing arts are plentiful! From catching a touring Broadway show to laughing the night away while watching improv, there is world-class entertainment to be found nearly every night.

Going to galleries and museums will also make your visit memorable—don't miss Madison's "museum mile" which stretches from the capitol to the UW-Madison campus. Plus, there are treasures to be found in all of the surrounding towns that make up the Greater Madison area.

We're also known for our love of live music. Our capital city is dotted with classic clubs and signature settings that have concerts nearly every night of the week. The city's robust fairs and festivals season is one more reason to mark your music calendar for a visit to Madison.
