The Des Moines Civic Center is a Must See for all. This venue is excellent to view broadway hits such as Beauty and the Beast and Mary Poppins! Their variety in performance is unparalleled.

What an amazing, moving, wow experience! Acting, singing, dancing and of course music were all awesome! Kudos to Des Performing Arts for bringing this show. Civic Center staff deserve recognition as well for communication prior to show, security at door, efficient, friendly staff. Thank you for an all around great experience.

DM Symphony Orchestra conducted by Maestro Guinta performance was excellent and enjoyable. Gil Shaham, violinist extraordinaire, delivered a virtuoso rendition of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto in D Major. A delightful, rare experience Sunday afternoon in DM.

Had a military organization reception here. The venue itself was very nice. I took the Skywalk to get there, and was glad I did. This building and many others are extremely well connected.

My wife and I attended Gil Shaham plays Tcaikovsky here last night. It's a nice venue with a good amount of room between rows. It's pretty close to a large amount of restaurants and bars. I'd come again for a show next time I'm in Des Moines

I have been visiting the Civic Center since I was a kid with my family and it is one of my favorite places in Des Moines. They bring in amazing hit broadway shows and put on productions that enhance the community. All the staff are friendly, welcoming, and helpful.
If you get a chance to see a show here I highly recommend it.

We have been coming to the civic center for years, but lately we have needed handicap accessibility, and every time we ask, we get just what we need, whether it is front row seats for extra spacing, or room to roll the scooter in to get to our seats, they have delivered. They even take our scooter and and bring it back. If you've been hesitating about attending because of a handicap, give them a call.

The Civic Center brings to Des Moines some of the best entertainment in the country. The Des Moines symphony performs several times per year and are always worth the price of admission. Visitors and residents also get to see some of the most popular shows out of New York like, Hamilton, Phantom of Opera and many others. There are no bad seats in the facility and the acoustics are excellent. For visitors to Des Moines from out of state this is a must see.
