Wisconsin has incredible science, technology and biotech stories, and many discoveries that helped change the world happened right here. Madison and the biotechnology industry have grown together, and collaborations between public and private organizations have helped develop a city directly on the edge of innovation.

Our goal is to make the Wisconsin Science Museum one of the country’s preeminent science and technology museums, highlighting connections to Wisconsin both locally and globally. By combining research, industry, and hands-on exploration, the museum will create fun and inspiring experiences that encourage visitors of all ages to improve the world by being thinkers, doers, and science and technology advocates.

Science and biotechnology are a significant part of Madison’s story, and we plan on encouraging community pride and participation in its next chapters. We’re ready to engineer Madison’s next big cultural resource – will you join us?
