Months-long celebration to mark Wisconsin Capitol's 100th birthday

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- This year marks a notable milestone for the state Capitol: its 100th anniversary.
 
 A bipartisan commission is planning a months-long celebration designed to reach people around the state whether they can travel to Madison or not.
Among the plans are an online virtual tour, a 500-square foot temporary museum in the building's rotunda and a commemorative book. Gov. Scott Walker, former Gov. Tommy Thompson and others will speak at a kick-off event January 31 which will draw dignitaries and include a public reception.
 
The festivities will move outside in the warmer months with a centennial flower garden and a special edition of the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra's Concerts on the Square.
 
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and Senate President Roger Roth are co-chairing the 11-member commission
