  • My lady and I were married here in 2014 because it is a beautiful building as well as a great price for the size of our wedding and reception! They offer an option for extra decor but it is not needed since the beauty of this building is able to stand alone without extra. The interactive exhibits are amazing! The design of each space, the reenactment performed by the actors as well as the knowledge they share is impressive.
  • Fun time. Got to see 80 Christmas trees. Multiple live historical experiences. Will validate parking if you park in their garage. On canal so fun views. Nice cafeteria type area as well. Friendly staff and decent prices for what you get.
  • Excellent place to hold events. Current event is the Festival of Trees 🎄! If you haven't been to check it out yet. You really should, very amazing. Over 80 trees 🎄 to see & vote for your top 3 throughout the whole month of December! Excellent customer service and clean establishment! Definitely recommend this place for all of the family!
  • New Christmas tradition: Viewing and judging decorated Christmas trees at History Center. Local businesses, schools, individuals compete for best overall. Nice place to eat at Stardust Cafê and walk it off looking at trees!
  • I was here for a holiday party and didn't get to see the trees but this place is awesome. Lots of history and cool activities for the family throughout the year with some items being free.
