Best View and Acoustics!

Attend MMA events here OFTEN! The crowd seating is excellent. The floor seating is better. The lighting is good. When a crowd gets loud, it gets high energy. The layout isn't too... read more

One of the best venues in Salem. Its for rent so a fee but just the right size for many functions, flea market style events, and sales. Good space and good staff support. parking is excellent and right next to the fairgrounds.

Not exactly the most updated venue, but it is all Salem has. Good place for convenience of a concert, but really could use some updating. building is at least 50 years old.

For the second time in two years we found ourselves at the Armory for our grand sons' graduations. Fortunately it was not too hot the last time as that is one draw back. When the graduates walked the stage the stage area was quite dark and a less than strong spotlight was put on the student as he/she crossed over.... More

Attend MMA events here OFTEN! The crowd seating is excellent. The floor seating is better. The lighting is good. When a crowd gets loud, it gets high energy. The layout isn't too complicated or too large to get lost. Great parking. Great long line area. Good lobby space (could use comfortable stationary benches around). A little updating would make this... More

Awesome seating and acoustics for a concert. I hope they bring more Christian artists - we will be there for sure.

This is good venue w/ adequate facilities to handle the thousands of people in attendance. Nice stadium style seating gives you a good view of the action and the seats are quite comfy. Nice stage area for the competitors to warm up.

Was there for a high school graduation ceremony. Loved the ceremony, but the facility was uncomfortable, The seats are small and hard it was extremely hot inside. It worked, but I would think twice before going there for anything else.

If you were making a movie and needed the quintessential depressing, musty, barebones auditorium, this would be the place. Unfortunately, many high schools are forced to use it for graduation by lack of alternatives

the salem armor is a great placr to see a show, go to a dance or just watch a game. personally, ive only seen bands play there, but the sound is incredible. my sister has also been to dances there and there is a basketball court so games could be played there. all in all, the armory kicks !
