Designed for those who love and hate Valentine’s Day alike, the Queen of Leaves will help you create an intricate up-cycled mosaic. Choose from heart magnet, a barrette, or a mini picture frame.

$10 per person. Purchase your add-on ticket in advance or at Adult Swim (space is limited, subject to availability).

  • Full service indoor bar
  • Ollie’s mac & cheese bar, including vegan and gluten free options
  • Grab a snack at our Wonderground camper concessions 

Adult Swim at Madison Children’s Museum honors the public pool tradition of kicking the kids out so adults can have the space to themselves (without the water or need for a swimsuit). This 21-and-up event series offers adults the opportunity to play like a grown-up for the evening—crawling, sliding, crafting, and dancing their way through the museum.


  • $20 advance (advance sales end at noon on day of event).
  • $25 at the door
  • $10 add-on mosaic craft with the Queen of Thorns

Ages 21 & up

Ticket cancellation/exchange policy.
