Request a Group Visit Reservation

Requested group visit dates are confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis, and are subject to availability.

A minimum of two weeks advance notice for group visit reservation requests is required; we will make every effort to satisfy late requests, but cannot guarantee accommodation. Requests are usually responded to within 3 to 5 business days.


Step 1: Request your group visit date

Group Visit Booking Times

Group visits are only available Wednesday through Friday. The earliest group visit start time is 9:30am and the latest group visit start time is 1:30pm. All group visit arrivals are booked on the hour or half hour.

MCM is unable to accommodate group visits during particularly busy seasons, such as school vacations and holidays.

Tip: Morning times fill up very quickly so we recommend completing the online booking request form as early as possible.

    Please note that Madison Children's Museum requires 1 adult chaperone per 5 children

    A minimum of 10 days advance notice is required for group visits

    Step 2: Follow the instructions email from the Group Visit coordinator

    Requests are usually responded to by email within 3 to 5 business days.

    Read the email from the group visit coordinator, review the attached materials, and pay your deposit to secure your visit.

    Reservations are secured with a non-refundable 50% deposit and should be considered tentatively held until MCM has received the deposit.

    Deposits are due no later than three weeks prior to the group visit. Please contact our group visits team if you think you will need a deposit due date extension. Family memberships, coupons, and guest passes may not be used toward your payment.

    Please note that your reservation is not confirmed until you receive a confirmation email from the registrar!
