Stopped here during our capitol area walkaround. Small museum, but had some great artifacts like a P-51 Mustang, a Vietnam era Huey helicopter, and some rare weapons. It's free, but they take donations to keep the place going. Worth a visit.

A great free museum on the square in Madison. It is an excellent venture to share the military history of the US & Wisconsin with youth.

This stop offered a very interesting, educational experience for my family. You can choose to focus on a specific war or travel through history and see the evolution of guns, equipment, and even planes are on exhibit. Well worth the visit with multiple generations.
