    Our beloved City Table is making a comeback for a limited time!

    At Madison Children’s Museum, we’re all about up-cycling. From recycled art supplies in the Art Studio, to our mural of plastic bottles in the Wonderground, and a Lake Michigan buoy in the Hodge-Podge-Mahal climber, we love giving new life to old items. Now, we’re refurbishing a community-favorite legacy exhibit, the City Table.

    Kids visiting MCM’s 2nd floor exhibits from 2010 to 2017 adored the City Table, a not-remotely-to-scale mini replica of the Madison Isthmus. With the City Table, visitors can take on the role of city planner—reinventing Madison and devising their own transportation system.

    As we prepare for an exciting transition in the Capitol Point exhibit area, the City Table returns from Winter Wonder Weeks 2023 to April 2024. This temporary installation will be located in the Celebrations Room, across from the 2nd floor elevator.
