Museums & History

A human-sized gerbil wheel, thousands of jars of mustard to see (and taste!) and a rooftop sculpture garden are just some of the highlights awaiting in Madison’s marvelous museums.  

As a state capital, our history and veteran’s museums tell the story of Wisconsin, while others tell the story a little closer to home. And, with free or low-cost admission, it’s easy to visit multiple museums while you’re in town.
