Gift Cards

If you want to buy a single visit to the museum for your loved ones, a gift card is a great way to do so. This will allow the recipient to pick the date that works best for them.

Museum gift cards never expire and are valid year-round for general admission tickets purchased at the front desk, special programs or events, memberships, treats or snacks from the gift shop, and more. (Sorry, at this time gift cards cannot be used to reserve advance tickets through our website.)

Gift cards purchased online are available in set amounts. Or visit our front desk to get a gift card for any value you choose.

Gifts in Honor

Madison Children’s Museum is a nonprofit organization. We rely on the generous support of our community so that the museum can continue to be an accessible and affordable place for all children.

Because the benefits of child-driven play are a critical part of early childhood development, it’s essential that MCM is here for everyone. Donations help underwrite admissions and memberships for over 3,400 families annually through our Access for Everyone program. A quarter of our visitors depend on this support to be able to bring their children.

When you give a gift in honor of a loved one, you’re giving joy and wonder as children connect, dream, and grow.
