2015 Capitol Christmas Tree

This holiday season, it is my sincere hope that across Wisconsin families and friends will get together to share stories, enjoy special meals, worship, relax, and spend quality time together. If you are looking for a short day trip, consider visiting Madison to see the 2015 State Capitol Christmas Tree -  a 32 foot Balsam Fir donated by Brad and Elizabeth Kowieski of Rhinelander, Wisconsin. 

During the month of December, the capitol’s first floor rotunda also hosts displays ranging from the Chanukah Menorah Display to various Nativity Scenes Even the group against any sort of religion - the Freedom from Religion Foundation- put up an anti-religion display. Their display and plaque will appear alongside a Nativity Scene through the end of December.  The Capitol is open 365 days a year!  Tours are offered most days, but not on Christmas – Capitol Tours.

There are many other interesting places to visit within walking distance of the Capitol.
