    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.

    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.

    Make sure your child is wearing clothes that can get messy! Also, bring an extra pair in case they get wet. :)
