The Way Things Work


For the Curious and Destructive!

Interested in seeing the insides of machines, but not accidentally breaking the ones in your home? Come and discover the way things work in this fun, interactive program where you wield the screwdriver and take machines down into their most basic parts!

This program takes place in the Art Studio Classroom.


Madison Children’s Museum’s drop-in programs are FREE for members or FREE with museum general admission. No pre-registration is needed. 

You may buy general admission tickets at the front desk, or save time and order them online. Tickets are good for visitation on any day the museum is open to the public and never expire.
