MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - The Madison Children’s Museum officially opened its doors this week to a new outdoor activity center, the Wonderground.

Tucked behind the museum, the 10,000 sq. foot Wonderground boasts a thicket climbing sculpture, the museum’s 1830′s-era log cabin, and a giant bucket turned on its side.

The new outdoor play area is now open to the public after Saturday morning’s kickoff to WonderPalooza. The fun continues over to Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., as Madison Children’s Museum welcomes kids to come run, jump, climb and explore.
