Reviewed March 31, 2013

Small but effective and comprehensive, covering all of the major conflicts involving America. One of the top attractions in Madison.

“Neat Place for a visit”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

We planned our trip in early winter specifically for the Civil War exhibit but was pleasantly surprised by all the other interesting exhibits as well. This was a great experience. It's free...you only have to find parking in downtown Madison but that really isn't a problem even with all the usual road blockages due to construction and snow removal. Would recommend this to anyone anytime of the yr.

“Free museum in downtown Madison”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Even though this is a free museum, it is clean and well organized. It also changes some of the exhibits regularly. My kids like the life size of diorama figures and real/original war items. The gift shop is small yet not pricey. This is a must see museum. You won't find a free yet great museum like this in the downtown of Madison.

“Great, free museum!”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Pretty small museum in downtown Madison, but well worth spending time here! Unique relics from the Civil War, Spanish-American War, WWI, WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Afghanistan War are all displayed. Guns, flags, uniforms...this museum has it all!
