Scholarships at Madison Children’s Museum

Madison Children’s Museum offers reduced tuition for Madison-area children to attend camps and programs.



Program scholarships are available to MCM Family Access member children completing grades 1 through 5 during the current school year; for summer camps, grade level refers to the most recently completed year. See our calendar and camps page for information about upcoming programs.

Scholarship funds may be used for any of the museum’s camps and programs, subject to enrollment availability. All programs are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. To learn more or become a Family Access member, please see the memberships page.


Your family qualifies for Family Access membership if any adults or children in your household utilize WIC, Head Start, free or reduced school lunch, Birth to 3, SSDI, Fostercare, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Unemployment Insurance or any other public assistance program.

How to Apply

Complete and submit the form below. Please note that you may be contacted for additional documentation before a scholarship determination is made.

A Note About Sold-Out Camps

Please note that MCM reserves a limited number of scholarship spaces for every camp, so it is possible that camps marked as sold out on our public camps page still have scholarship spaces available. To inquire about a sold-out camp, please speak with the Registrar after receiving your scholarship determination letter. Additional scholarship spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and we cannot guarantee availability for any specific camp.
