Hours & Schedule

The museum is temporarily closed due to COVID-19, and will reopen in June 2021.

Reopening dates:

  • Soft Opening,” only for museum members, starting June 3: Members are the heart of Madison Children’s Museum and we deeply appreciate the support members have given the museum during this difficult closure. As we reopen, we want to prioritize members, and also enlist their partnership in creating and implementing new procedures for a safe, fun museum experience. From June 3 to June 20 admission will be available for museum members only. Members who visit during the soft opening will be asked to give feedback on new policies and procedures so that we can improve and provide the best possible experience for all families.
  • Open to the public June 24: We will welcome back visitors from the general public starting on June 24. Admissions will continue to be limited in accordance with, or going further than, public health guidelines.

MCM will open Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.


The museum will be OPEN on July 4, 2021.

Weather Closures

The museum will close during extreme weather conditions, including days when travel is deemed risky for visitors and staff. If the Madison Metropolitan School District closes due to the weather we also will close.
