The museum is entering a new phase...

Thank you for being part of the community of support that has sustained the museum since our opening in 2016. We started out like a caterpillar, learning how to best grow and serve the community as a brand new museum. We are excited to announce that WSM is entering a new phase in our development—the chrysalis stage of restructuring and focusing on how to continue our growth and spread our wings as a full fledged butterfly and a cultural landmark for the state of Wisconsin.
We are moving out of our temporary space at the North Carroll Street location and setting up shop at 2300 South Park Street. The museum will close on May 19th and we will start preparing for our move. To do this, we need your help!
CLICK HERE to learn more about the future direction and plan for the Museum and sign up for a volunteer work day to help pack and prepare for the move to our new location.
We look forward to having you join us on our new phase of development. Thank you for all you do to make the Wisconsin Science Museum a success!
