See the University as a Constellation of Science Venues

Madison does not have a large, comprehensive science museum or hands-on science center. But you can still experience science as exploring the unknown — if you can see the whole University as a Constellation of Science Venues that together become your Destination for Exploration!

Like a starry constellation, the UW-Madison Science Constellation is an organization of programs and venues that helps you see, find, navigate, connect with, and participate in the science enterprise on campus.
