School Tours

The museum offers a variety of educational tour options that meet Wisconsin Model Academic Standards for Social Studies. We ask that you please contact us at least two weeks in advance to schedule your tour; especially during the spring when we experience our highest volume of school groups and visitors.

Groups of ten or more can make an online reservation for a tour or can contact Jennifer Kaye Kollath by phone at 608-264-7663 or e-mail

The museum offers three tour options; self guided tours, docent guided tours, and scavenger hunts. All tours are FREE and last about an hour.

Self Guided Tours:
Explore the museum at your own pace and with your own thematic interest in mind.

Docent Guided Tours: Guided tours are available for groups of ten but not more than sixty individuals. Many of our docents are veterans whose perspectives provide a unique visitor experience.

Scavenger Hunts: Students unlock answers to questions in their booklets by searching exhibits in the museum. Scavenger hunt booklets are available for grades K-12 and include text in both English and Spanish. Click here to visit our scavenger hunt booklet page, download a booklet PDF for your visit and get ready to explore!

Get your personalized Dog Tags!
One of the Wisconsin Veterans Museum most popular items is our personalized dog tags. We encourage teachers to print out the dog tag form and have students fill them out in advance of their trip to the museum. Once you arrive at the museum, simply give the gift shop your dog tag forms and payment, and we will be happy to make them while you are on your tour.

After Your Visit Please Complete the School Tour Evaluation.
Please take a few moments to tell us about your tour experience. Your input helps us improve our programs and makes future visits more rewarding for all visitors. Mail your completed form to the address at the top of the form, or email to Visitor Services.
