  1. Lily-Pad Theater

    Comments Off on Lily-Pad Theater

    Join us for a fun music and storytelling program for early learners.  There will be singing, puppet shows and a chance to move our bodies.

    We will gain literacy, use our imaginations, and use large motor skills as we experience the different activities in the program.

    Each week’s activities will revolve around a theme. It’s good to be there for the whole program to get the most out of it, but families can come and go as they please.

    Today’s program takes place in the Wildernest exhibit.


    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.
