Excellent venue. Adjacent to Embassy Suites. Convenient. South Hall area. Parking was difficult for a first timer to find. Signage could be improved.

Plenty of room for all the booths and not be cramped in. Needs better chair accessibility, or better signs pointing the way, for South hall enterence if you have to park across the street.

Nice place to visit for an attraction. There are no dislikes-- parking is all around and costs $5 for the day.

Saw Avenged sevenfold at the Van Braun stadium and had an overall fun experience. Was able to get in quickly through security with little bottle necking and the staff was helpful with directing us to our seats. Food was no more expensive than one would expect for these type of events with a decent variety of vendors.

First let me say that Martina was awesome and a real trooper at her concert. The problem is the A/C in the Concert Hall as she complained as well. We had a renovation of the place and they spent some where close to 5 million dollars on this project. The problem is they should have got a heavier duty one... More

We happened to be in Huntsville on a night that there was a special astronomical presentation for adults and children at the planetarium. This center is situated atop a beautiful hill/mountain with beautiful overlook views nearby. The planetarium was cozy and the presentation was great. The presenter was engaging. The sky cleared just in time for some telescope viewing.

Having lived here 6 years now, the VBC is simply the center of everything locally. I have attended business conferences and high school graduations here but there are also plays, musicals, sporting events, proms and many other things throughout the year- many events going on concurrently each weekend evening.

The area is rather desolated. It you are traveling to Hunstville, I highly recommend that you stay at the Embassy which is connected to the Von Braun Conference. The prepared food at Von Braun was very delicious!
