We used to love this place before it was taken over by Freed-Hardeman University. While I have nothing really against FHU, it's very sad that all the wonderful courses are no longer available, especially the art courses. This used to be a great place for community learning, especially in the arts. Students of all ages could come here and get... More

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. When the whole purpose of the building is theatre and the arts for the community, budget cuts to those programs aren't exactly recommended.

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. On Nov 19, 2013, Clarksville Online reported, "Freed-Hardeman University... More

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.
