The Madison Theatre Guild’s Costume Shop is one of Madison’s lesser known treasures! One of the largest collections of its kind in southern Wisconsin -- housing more than 70,000 costumes -- the Shop has become a depository for old, new, and interesting clothing. The Costume Shop is located in the upstairs of the Firehouse and has 8 rooms packed full of clothing, including shoes, hats, gloves and undergarments of all periods.
