Looking for something to do this wintery afternoon? The Madison Children’s Museum is having a dedication for its newest exhibit today at 4:30 pm. Visitors will even have a chance to try out the Punch Buggy before the museum closes at 5 pm. More info in the press release below:
Punch Buggy Exhibit Dedication Monday, Jan. 31
What do you get when you give Madison Children’s Museum Exhibits Designer Jon Edwards a 1957 Heinkel Trojan automobile, a couple of charcoal grills, a handful of discarded window sash weights, and a boxing glove from Ford’s Gym?
The answer is the Punch Buggy, of course. The museum’s newest exhibit—part of the second-floor Possible-opolis exhibit area, in the Bolz Gallery—offers visitors the chance to swivel the car, raise or lower the boom, and take a jab at a selection of whimsical targets hanging in the museum’s atrium.
Join museum staff plus employees from J.H. Findorff & Son, the company that is generously sponsoring the Punch Buggy, as the exhibit is officially unveiled. The museum is open until 5, so visitors will be able to try out the Punch Buggy for photo and video opportunities.
