The Shaw Center is a wonderful place for various theatrical, musical and performance events. Located downtown and close to the Mississippi River. If you go to the roof you can go outside and view the traffic steaming upstream or gliding downstream. Worth a visit.

The Shaw Center is fun for children on a hot day because of the neat fountain at the entrance. The plaque says it was a gift to the citizens by a local family. How wonderful.
