Skyline Museum



Located in the lower level of the Festival Conference and Student Center, Skyline Museum houses rotating exhibits drawn from the Madison Art Collection.  This coffee friendly gallery welcomes the casual visitor to purchase their favorite brew from the nearby Java City Coffee Bar and enjoy it while viewing art and cultural objects from around the world.  We will also have iPads that can be checked out with a JAC card or Driver's License for use with the exhibits in the gallery!
