About

Welcome to the Madsonian, a museum of Industrial Design.  Our collection represents a lifetime of appreciation for and devotion to good design, displaying the best designed and most artistic everyday objects.  From cars to toasters, and from toys to canoes…

It is becoming more and more important to think carefully about how we as a civil society use our resources.  By making the everyday beautiful and well designed, and by recognizing and valuing that effort, we can reduce our throw-away culture and become one that surrounds ourselves with beauty, thoughtfulness and art.

The museum has in its collection work by designers such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Frank Gehry, Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe, Aalvar Alto, Raymond Loewy, Norman Bel Geddes, Eero Saarinen, and Marcel Breuer, to name a few.
