Wonder Makers

You can make developmentally critical play available to all children by becoming a Wonder Maker. Joining Wonder Makers at Madison Children’s Museum gives you the chance to connect with an elite group of other museum supporters who know that play is fun and fundamental for children’s growth and enjoyment of life.

Wonder-ful Cause

Madison Children’s Museum serves our community by providing a place for all children to explore, develop their intellects, and connect with their families, their communities, and the world beyond. The developmental benefits of play are critical to every child’s growth. We strongly believe that every child should have access to these resources and so we price our admission rates for everyone far below the actual cost-per-person to fund the museum. We further reduce admission rates and offer a variety of other programs to reduce barriers through our Access for Everyone programs. All of this is only possible due to the generous financial support of our community, and Wonder Makers play a critical part of that process!

Wonder-ful Exclusive Events

Only for Wonder Makers, we’ve created a series of summertime events on the museum’s Rooftop Ramble, which offers amazing views of the Capitol Square and Lake Mendota. These events give you the opportunity to experience the most beautiful part of our museum outside of public visiting hours during our busiest season and to meet and mingle with your fellow Wonder Makers.

Wonder Makers-Only Events:

  • Up with the Chickens! Enjoy coffee and light pastries as you explore our rooftop garden before the museum opens to the public.
  • Cocktails Before Concerts on the Square Come up to our rooftop to enjoy pre-concert cocktails and hors d’oeuvres before heading down to listen to the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra.
  • View from the Top Experience one of the best sunset views in Madison at this gathering of the museum’s most generous supporters. Sample produce from the museum’s rooftop garden, sip on signature cocktails, and celebrate the power of play.

Wonder Makers will also be invited to new exhibit opening celebrations.
