Madison Children’s Museum is currently on the leaderboard for USA Today’s readers’ choice poll to find the 10 best children’s museums in the country. The poll is part of USA Today’s annual ’10Best’ Readers’ Choice Awards. Voting ends on Feb. 17, and the winners are unveiled Feb. 28. You can vote for Madison Children’s Museum by clicking here.

Similar to Madison Magazine’s Best of Madison readers’ poll, USA Today’s awards are based on user-submitted votes. This isn’t the first time a Madison name has appeared on a USA Today 10Best poll. Last year, The Old Fashioned topped the 10Best list for best cheese curds in Wisconsin, followed by a few other Madison-area businesses, including Curd Girl, Grumpy Troll Brewpub (Mount Horeb), Crawfish Junction (Johnson Creek) and Kristi’s Restaurant (New Glarus).

Madison Children’s Museum won gold in the 2019 Best of Madison poll, and it’s sure to be a contender for the 2020 awards, which will be announced on March 19.
