We Take Play Seriously 2012–13 Annual Report

We Take Play Seriously
2012–13 Annual Report
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from
serious learning. But for children play is serious
learning. Play is really the work of childhood.”
— Fred Rogers
Play is essential. It’s how kids learn to invent, share, and explore.
We don’t impose boundaries and there is no right way to play at MCM.
This open-ended environment makes learning through play possible.
This year alone, over 210,000 children and families explored four
brand new, custom-crafted permanent exhibits and 14 temporary
exhibits in the galleries; expanded their knowledge at 800 educational
classes and workshops; and attended fun events that brought them
closer to the people and places of their community.
Madison Children’s Museum is a learning playground with chances to
make a discovery or a mess or a brand new friend during every visit.
We look forward to continuing and improving our work as we look to
2014 and beyond. Thank you for being part of it.
Deb Gilpin, Executive Director
We are blessed with community treasures that add such vitality
and character to our culture. That includes the Madison Children’s
Museum. No matter your age, you will learn in every visit to this
special place, and you will recognize the value of its programs and
people. This Annual Report is but a snapshot of events, participants,
and exhibits. It is such a worthy investment in our future. Come and
play! Be inspired! Learn and grow! Share talents and knowledge!
Become a part of our ever-growing family… and bring your friends!
Diane Ballweg, Chair, Board of Directors
Mission: Madison Children’s Museum connects

Economic Impact Statement
We strengthen the local economy
We promote tourism
Madison Children’s Museum’s new building
represents a $16.5 million capital investment in
downtown Madison.

in Wisconsin, MCM is a model of green renovation,
exhibit design, and sustainable operations.
We provide jobs
The museum provides 54 jobs (28 full-time and
26 part-time) for a wide range of skills.
We use Wisconsin products
From the beautiful hardwood floors to energysaving bathroom fixtures, our facility is a showcase
of Wisconsin natural resources and manufactured
access for everyone
MCM’s goal is to always say yes to play, which is
why we created the Access for Everyone program.
After all, it’s the kids that fill our museum with

programs to 338 people. SPARK! brings children
together with adults who have memory loss, where
they create projects, build understanding, and
learn new things. In 2013 MCM opened a second
