I really enjoy going here to see plays and other performances, but it seems as in the past few years the overall quality has gone down some.

If you like art, they have a gallery that they are always updating with new artists. They have art for sale as well. There is a gift shop where you can purchase some locally made pieces. They also have a planetarium where you can go to see educational shows as well as " Laser Shows" featuring Pink Floyd, Metallica etc...

The Renaissance Center has been a real blessing to the Dickson community since 1999, bringing fine arts exhibits, plays & music theater, local offerings from regional universities, etc. It's an amazing facility for a town our size, and I'm told it draws people from 75 miles away for events and classes.

The exhibits are great here and the ambiance is much greater than expected for a rural community. I especially like the live musical performances and the dinner theatre. And the planetarium is on par w/much offerings in much bigger cities.

They offer different types of classes, shows, tours. Its just a real family friendly place. Schools tend to take field trips to see what shows they have playing.

The "Ren Center", as we locals call it, is an educational must see for those visiting Dickson. This facility was built with donated profits from the sale of a local hospital by the Jackson family. The Jackson family has a long and wide history in the medical field and still practices in our town, today. The Ren Center is a... More
