There is not a bad seat in the place. The little museum is quite interesting to walk through if you come a little early for whatever show you are there to see, and it's free to walk through which is a bonus.

Awesome and intimate place to watch concerts and plays. Main venue for the annual Medicine Hat Jazz Fest. Great sound and sight lines. Also has an interesting museum.

My Husband and I have attended several shows here, and have not been disappointed! The last show was the Menopause Musical

Underground parking option is so cosmopolitan for evening shows! Unfortunate that we recently lost Bravo café and wine bistro... will be missed. Beautiful grounds and spacious foyer. Good meeting rooms also available. Museum is well maintained, although displays are slow to change.

Great little venue for small events. Was here last year to watch the band of the welsh guards, nothing in particular stood out. I mean it's no Royal Albert Hall however can hold enough people for a good size event and always seems to have something happening.

Seats are comfortable. We really appreciate the underground parking when the weather is not so nice and so convenient. Good selection of performance throughout the year.
