Plays at the playhouse, concerts at the performing arts center, sports and big productions at the arena, there's always something interesting going on at the Von Braun Center. The highest quality entertainment in Huntsville will be found here.

Known as the VBCC it is located close to downtown and within walking distance. VBCC is right next to the Embassy Suites hotel with a tunnel connecting both buildings. the stadium seats about 5,000 with good views no matter where you are seated. Great for concerts., high school graduations, hockey games etc. Plenty of underground parking

To be fair, one must go to the VBC for the largest events in North Alabama (think Cirque du Sole', etc.). The VBC hosts concerts and rodeos and conventions. As an event organizer, I have found the VBC staff to be absolutely accommodating. I know they have to make a buck but my events must cater to my clientele and... More

The Von Braun Center filled the bill for the Small Market Meetings Conference. The space was just right and the audio was not echoing. Bathrooms were convenient to the trade show.

Was easy to get to and from. Easy to follow directions getting to seat, though a large venue. Employees helpful in locating seats as well. Well laid out and connected to Embassy Suites if you wished to dine or stay the evening.

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!
