Green Initiatives

With a focus on children and the future, Madison Children’s Museum is committed to being green!

We strive to be a balanced, sustainable organization, from electronic communications and break room composting that goes directly to our rooftop garden, to recycled building materials and “upcycled” art projects in the Art Studio.

LEED Gold Certified

We are proud to announce that in 2014, Madison Children’s Museum was  awarded LEED Gold certification for an existing building. LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices.

As the only museum in Wisconsin to earn this honor, this award recognizes our leadership in promoting sustainable design and practices–especially in the field of children’s museums.

Green Tours

Free green tours take place at 5 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month. See the building’s green spaces, salvaged materials, and more. Register for a tour one week in advance by calling 608.256.6445.


GreenExhibits.org

To better coordinate green practices in museums nationwide, we’ve launched GreenExhibits.org as a resource for designing and building spaces that support a healthier future for kids and the environment.
