Foursquare Tips

  • Very cool place!! Great fun for the kids.
  • Teach your kids about nature and let them plant flowers, collect chicken eggs, play in tree houses, and play on local natural materials.
  • Paint on the windows, run in an adult-sized hamster wheel and savor delicious views of the Capitol from the rooftop play area.
  • Human sized gerbil wheel!
  • It's pretty awesome.
  • MCM hosts monthly themed Adult Swim nights- grab a beer and enjoy the hamster wheel!
  • If you have a membership, think about stopping in @4pm on a summer afternoon. We do this often in June-August---it's the perfect amount of time to see it all, grab an ice cream and head home.
  • Bring extra clothes if your kids play in the water room!
  • Amazing fun for the kids. Worth every penny of the membership!
  • The rooftop gardens are worth the ticket price. Views of Madison + live chickens are great!
  • Check out the rooftop garden -- when we visited, there were little baby chicks walking around that kids could feed and pet.
  • The membership is one of the best deals out there!
  • It's even fun for the older children/adults
  • Great staff.
  • A little small, but kids will love it.
  • Such a cool place, especially for adult events like the one I attended!
  • LEED Gold certified building... They used a TON of recycled pieces when building exhibits
  • The roof top is awesome.
  • We love this place. :-)
  • Very impressed! Much nicer and less chaotic than the Chicago children's museum!!
