recently renovated venue

this is not a huge venue and most seats are good seats. This is a good place to catch the circus or a concert.

Went her for a play on two separate occasions. The Plays were great, the venue was not. The whole center is in desperate need of major renovations from the top down. The seating in one area smelled musty, and the bathrooms need major repairs (doors not working, floor and sinks in BAD shape). The city of Huntsville should be ashamed... More

Very nice, clean auditorium. Odd but convenient that they offered concession at college graduation. The seating was very comfortable even though we were seated for several hours.

We attended the play "The Games Afoot" and had a wonderful evening. The play had a great creative twist and most of the acting was superb! It was well-directed and staged beautifully. We will definitely be back for more theater at the VBC!

The VBC is a venue that hosts anything from conventions, concerts, weddings, birthday parties. The atmosphere is highly electric when you happen to attend the sport that a majority of people in this city adores:The Havoc games!!!

I've never had a bad time at the Von Braun Center. Except the one time we got groupons for that shrimp festival that didn't include any shrimp -- that still rankles. But everything else, from company Christmas parties to hockey games to hokey arena football games to the Avengers, has been loads of fun and well-managed by the Von Braun... More

Was in this facility for 3 days for a very important religious event. Great place for it to be held. Roomy with good acoustics.
