Things to do in Madison, WI: March 21-27

Hi there,

The Madison Children’s Museum has expanded hours this week.

On that note, I’d like to do a better job of finding kid-friendly events. What’s your favorite place to take your kids? Reply and let me know. I’ll add your suggestions to our list of sources to check each week. 😊

Have a good week!
