  • One of my favorite museum's in the Midwest. It's filled with cool information and lots of things to see and touch. Best of all it's free and right in the capitol square. A must see. Don't miss this important historical monument to those who sacrificed.
  • Great museum the amount of information and stories they have gives everyone a little better understanding of our veterans. They have many artifacts and stories from every major conflict I would recommend this museum for a family or anyone spending time in the Madison area.
