Great place for a convention.

Wonderful Building to hold a convention. a lot of different meeting areas. The only thing they need improvement on, is the catering of food for meals.

Saw Jeff Dunham last night. Row 35 seats 1-4. Great seats, easy to see everything. The four of us ate supper had a few drinks and enjoyed a good show. The restrooms were clean and easy to find. We paid the $5.00 to park so as not to walk for a few blocks in the below zero temps. I would... More

I have gone to multiple concerts at the Bismarck Civic Center and I have never been disappointed. The layout of the building is awesome; if you go to a concert in the lower level you feel as though you are in a completely different place!

I attended a local conference at the event center and it was just ok. It was cold like most conference centers but the sound system didn't work well which was frustrating. The food served was actually pretty good and the people serving it were wonderful and kept the buffet well stocked. There was nothing special about this venue.

This museum was not only incredibly interesting and fun but also free. One of the best things in Bismarck. My boys were 1 and 3 when we were here and they had a blast as did my husband and I!

The civic center puts on some great events. We always have a good time when we attend. I do wish they would have more kids activities though.

This venue is fine for a circus, sport shows, craft sales, and etc. However not for any good concert entertainers, it's too small. No parking, and just in an odd part of the town. Understandable why no big name entertainers will ever perform here. The city commissioners should listen to the public when they were against building on to this... More

Went there visiting a friend of mine from Texas, the building was huge and looks like there are some areas still under construction but they did pretty good in organizing the event.

We went to a concert there and were sitting in the 205 area. First of all I'm afraid of heights, but thought it would be just fine until I saw there was NO RAIL to hold on to to get to our row!!!! Then after practically crawling up there our shoes kept sticking to the nasty floor. ALL STAIRS SHOULD... More
