Wonderful venue for a mid sized city. Located just on the outskirts of downtown the Cultural center has a museum, restaurant, ample parking and a fine albeit small theatre where many cultural events and shows take place. Nice place to visit.

Suffolk did it right. The transformation of of an old high school into a first class center is a great achievement to be copied by other communities. There is a shop, a theater, a gourmet restaurant and various exibits halls.
