Shows on Campus

There are two ways that you can see a Wonders of Physics show on the UW-Madison Campus:

1) Come to one of our annual shows for the general public in February. These shows are free and tickets can be reserved beginning on January 1.

2) Schedule a group visit.

You can bring a group to campus, and a Wonders of Physics show can be part of your day! Contact Vistor & Information Programs. They will help to plan your day on campus, including bus parking, lunch, campus tours, and other campus attractions.

The Ingersoll Physics Museum is also in Chamberlin Hall. Check it out while you are here! Group tours can be arranged.

We ask for a suggested donation of $100 for your first campus show, and $50 for each additional show.

Due to room availability when UW-Madison classes are in session, we can only host groups of less than 60. During breaks, we can host larger groups. See the chart below:
