General tours and things to do

Madison and the surrounding offer many things to do and explore!

The best way to experience the beauty and grandeur of Wisconsin's Capitol building (located at 2 East Main Street, Madison, WI 53702) is to see it for yourself. It is open to the public weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and weekends and holidays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Free tours are offered daily, year round except on the following holidays: New Year's Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas. Tours start at the information desk Monday through Saturday at 9:00, 10:00, 11:00 a.m. and 1:00, 2:00, 3:00 p.m.; and Sundays at 1:00, 2:00, 3:00 p.m. A 4:00 p.m. tour is offered weekdays (Monday - Friday), excluding holidays, during Memorial Day through Labor Day. Plan on spending 45-55 minutes for a tour. The sixth floor museum and observation deck are open during the summer months. Groups of ten or more can make an on-line reservation for a tour of the State Capitol or call (608)266-0382.

Wisconsin History Museum

Museum staff offer free tours at 1pm daily. These 30-minute tours go beyond what is on display in the exhibits and give tour-goers a broad understanding of Wisconsin’s history. An additional tour is offered at 11am on Saturdays specifically for families with children. This tour is a little shorter and a bit more interactive; perfect for families who want to encounter our state’s story!

Picnic Point

Picnic Point, a nearly mile-long peninsula along Lake Mendota’s south shore, is among Madison’s most distinctive features and is probably the most popular destination in the Preserve. Each year thousands of students and Madisonians visit the Point for outings. In a hectic world of university life or city living, it’s nice to know that this natural area is just a short distance from where you live.

Devil's Lake

There’s always something to do at Devil’s Lake State Park!  Upcoming event information is available at the park’s website.
