Welcome to the Madsonian Museum of Industrial Design

Welcome! 

 

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 manufactured objects.  From cars to toasters, and from toys to canoes...


Thinking about how we,  as a civilized society, use our resources is becoming more and more important. By making everyday objects both functional and  beautiful, 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 collection features work by many designers, including some of the world's most eminent: Frank Lloyd Wright, Frank Gehry, Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe, Aalvar Alto, Raymond Loewy, Norman Bel Geddes, Eero Saarinen, and Marcel Breuer.
