Education Programs

The War Memorial Center provides a variety of internal and outreach programs that offer unique opportunities for students and Wisconsin residents to learn about patriotism, history, and the accomplishments of our veterans. The WMC is Wisconsin’s most visible memorial to all those who have served in the U.S. Armed Services, and is committed to furthering a single, solemn mission: “To Honor the Dead by Serving the Living.”

Take a tour!

The War Memorial Center is the perfect destination for schools and organizations to learn about the sacrifices of Wisconsin’s Veterans. We offer self-guided tours, or, for groups of 10 or more, we provide a WMC guide to lead you through the facilities.

Plan a program!

We offer standards-based educational opportunities for your students, planned with you around your unit of study and curriculum. We also invite school groups to utilize our venue as a site for appropriately themed programs and performances.
