Ames City Auditorium

Ames City Auditorium is a beautifully preserved, historic auditorium located conveniently in the heart of Downtown Ames. Originally built in the 1930s as part of Ames High School, the auditorium was refurbished, renovated, and reopened in 1991 as part of the transformation into the new Ames City Hall.


You will find parking on the north and west sides of the building, with the main entrance on the north side.
