Visiting Madison

We love our city and know you’ll fall in love too!

Our pride stems from Madison consistently being named one of the top places in the U.S. to live, work, play, and raise a family. We’re green, bike-friendly, have amazing music venues, great food, plus one of the nation’s largest farmers’ markets takes place right outside the museum’s front door. Our Capitol City is filled with things to do for the entire family and we can’t wait for you to find out yourself.
