Access for Everyone Campaign

In the museum until June 16, 2019
Online through June 30, 2019

Every child deserves the opportunity to learn through play at the museum, regardless of any economic, social, cognitive, or cultural barriers. Madison Children’s Museum created our Access for Everyone programs to say YES to play. Read more about Access for Everyone programs.

Access for Everyone programs include:

When you visit the museum between May 16 and June 16, expect the front desk staff to ask if you would like to add a gift to support Access for Everyone programs.

This year our friends at UW Credit Union are matching gifts made at the front desk. Support Access for Everyone and your gift will be doubled!

For each gift, you can decorate a leaf for our Access for Everyone tree in the museum lobby. Watch as the tree grows this spring!

Say YES to play, support Access for Everyone with a gift today!
