Stopped here during our capitol area walkaround. Small museum, but had some great artifacts like a P-51 Mustang, a Vietnam era Huey helicopter, and some rare weapons. It's free, but they take donations to keep the place going. Worth a visit.

A great free museum on the square in Madison. It is an excellent venture to share the military history of the US & Wisconsin with youth.

This stop offered a very interesting, educational experience for my family. You can choose to focus on a specific war or travel through history and see the evolution of guns, equipment, and even planes are on exhibit. Well worth the visit with multiple generations.

If you are near the capitol, please take time to visit this museum. It is very well organized with great information and doesn't take a long time to get through. Even our teen-age daughter who isn't much for history really enjoying the exhibits and gained...More
