Check out the building that offers everything from a coffee house to great dining. The old opera house still stands and they even have an art exhibit.

“Fantastic restored 1889 building”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2013

Seems like things are kinda' in disarray. I have been there many times - the opera house itself is fantastic - but the visiting experience not so great.

“Fantastic Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2012

I liked how they are renovating this cool old building. I also appreciated the exhibits they offered such as King Tut and the dinosaur exhibit. I took my students on a field trip to thse places. They also have a neat wildlife display on the main floor. Great gift shop.

“My favorite space in Watertown SD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

The Goss Opera House is a huge renovated facility. They have stayed true to the original structure with the original hardwood & exposed brick - so beautiful, and full of so much character. There are several spaces within the building. The Goss Opera House is home to fine dining, cafe, live music, coffee house, 3 floors of gallery space, and the Opera House itself, which I presume hosts plays or musical events from time to time. It is also my understanding that the gallery space is sometimes switched out to host traveling exhibits. A must see if you are in downtown Watertown SD.
