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!

What a really nice center for a gymnastics meet. It was well lighted to take pics and seating were chairs with back, so made it much more comfortable to sit for 3 hours.

We took out one year old grandson to see event in the Harris Concert Hall. We parked in area next to deck where the Boy Scouts were. Odd that would allow competition on same grounds but glad to help the BS. A simple cross the street and you are at entrance. The people were very friendly with directing to our... More
