People tend to check in during these times:
Paint on the windows, run in an adult-sized hamster wheel and savor delicious views of the Capitol from the rooftop play area.
Check out the rooftop garden -- when we visited, there were little baby chicks walking around that kids could feed and pet.
Very cool place!! Great fun for the kids.
Human sized gerbil wheel!
It's pretty awesome.
MCM hosts monthly themed Adult Swim nights- grab a beer and enjoy the hamster wheel!
Bring extra clothes if your kids play in the water room!
Amazing fun for the kids. Worth every penny of the membership!
The rooftop gardens are worth the ticket price. Views of Madison + live chickens are great!
Teach your kids about nature and let them plant flowers, collect chicken eggs, play in tree houses, and play on local natural materials.
If you have a membership, think about stopping in @4pm on a summer afternoon. We do this often in June-August---it's the perfect amount of time to see it all, grab an ice cream and head home.
Great museum, but the construction around it and crowd is a deterrent.
Mon and Tue are the slowest days weekends can get busy if its bad weather or events..parking is usually fine
Very impressed! Much nicer and less chaotic than the Chicago children's museum!!
Just have fun!
We take the kids (3 & 6 yo) here often. They love this place, especially the rooftop area and the human hamster wheel.
Nice place but probably suited more for the younger kids.
They have a great 5 and under area
Fun Fun Fun for young and old
Lots of very cool, hands-on experiences!!!
Lots of fun choices on activities!! Loved the crows nest on the roof !!
The Madison Children's Museum is hosting several events during the Wisconsin Science Festival Sept. 27-30. WiSciFest.org
Voted Madison's Favorite Museum, Chilrens Activity, and Spot to go on a rainy day by Isthmus readers!
Military families get in free memorial day to labor day w/ ID!!
Great place to take your 4-6,7 year old to have a fun time. Also a parking ramp is just across the street from MCM which is great!
Go in the shadow room
Make sure to visit the rooftop garden and you might see some chickens.
Make sure your child is wearing clothes that can get messy! Also, bring an extra pair in case they get wet. :)
