Camp Out in the Ward Window!

All summer long, kids can hike to the Community Concourse camping exhibit to learn different ways to build a campfire, identify Wisconsin birds, and cast lines for local fish. The new outdoorsy exhibit is a fun and informational tribute to a Wisconsin’s long tradition of family campouts.

Glow Show

Downtown Madison will light up all summer with MCM’s new temporary exhibit, Glow Show. Shining from the museum’s third floor, this art display consists of over 20 whimsical neon sculptures inspired by children’s artwork created in the MCM Art Studio. Look for it day and night this summer!
