• Overview

    Share the past and imagine the future! Explore American history with a focus on the life and stories of 18th- and 19th- century craftsmen and artisans. Drawing on its rich collection, METC is connecting the lives of people and their stories, while providing a bridge from the past to the future. Housed in a stunning Richardsonian Romanesque Revival building (and Madison's first public library), it was donated by D. Willis James to the people of Madison in 1900. METC offers something for visitors of all ages.
