Where to find us:
The Geology Museum is on the campus of the University of Wisconsin – Madison. We are located in Weeks Hall at 1215 W. Dayton Street, two blocks east of Camp Randall Stadium on the corner of Charter Street and Dayton Street.
Parking, Bus, and Bike Information:
The nearest UW parking lots are Lot 80 (beneath Union South) and Lot 17 (off of Engineering Drive). There are meters located on Monroe Street outside of Camp Randall Stadium, or there are two-hour unmetered spots on the streets south of the museum (but it is often difficult to find an open spot).
Buses operate regularly on University Avenue, W. Johnson Street, and Park Street, all of which are within walking distance of the museum.
See the Madison Metro Transit web site for route and schedule information.
There are public bike racks available outside the building. The closest bike share (Madison BCycle) station is at Union South, one block away.
The museum is located on a single level of Weeks Hall and is wheelchair accessible. Stools are available for visitors to use within the museum if needed.

Sensory tools are available for visitors to check out for free from the Museum Tour Office. They include child sized weighted vests, ear protection, sunglasses and sensory toys.
