Welcome to the Wisconsin Veterans Museum Website

On behalf of the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs and the Wisconsin Veterans Museum I wish to say thank you for visiting our website. Within the pages of this site you will find very valuable information and resources to assist you with learning about our state’s veterans and the sacrifices they made in times of war.

But please do not stop here. Whether you are a teacher, a student or a member of the general public, your learning experience is not complete until you explore the museum in person and see everything that it has to offer.

The museum is much more than a building located on the capitol square in Madison, it is an educational package consisting of exhibits, living histories, informational programs and speakers, and much more. It is constantly evolving and improving to provide you with the ability to feel what it was like to serve in our nation’s wars and conflicts. It is only through your choice to immerse yourself in the entire experience that you will begin to understand and appreciate how our veterans felt. I challenge you to do so because the greatest thing you can do to thank our men and women who have served is to REMEMBER them.

Warmest Regards,

John A. Scocos
