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.

Nice arena for hockey. They run a lot of promotions for their D1 hockey team. Lots of alcohol choices which surprised me for college games . They had FREE admission the weekend I was in town.

Von Braun is an unexpectedly large convention center but it is not in tip-top shape. Exhibition space and meeting rooms were adequate, and can handle a large crowd without a lot of problems. That is a good thing. But, there is nothing stunning here and it seems to be a long way to any off-campus food.

My niece and her husbands' graduation was held here. This place is outrageously huge and overwhelming with space. ...awesome place to hold graduation and what a memory. Lots of other events are carried out here and this is the place to have your events for sure.
