Wisconsin History Center / Madison, WI

The Wisconsin Historical Society is bringing a new, 21st-century history center and cultural attraction to the people of Wisconsin and beyond. Designed to be a welcoming beacon of inspiration and exploration, the new center set on Wisconsin’s Capitol Square in Madison will reflect a modern approach to sharing history and connecting communities.

The history center will sit squarely at the intersection of Madison’s vibrant State Street and Wisconsin’s Capitol Square, serving as a hub of community engagement and civic activity. The 100,000-square-foot landmark will provide unprecedented access to the state’s venerable collection of nearly 290 million items.
