Affordable, Unique Meeting Space at the Crossroads of Southern MN

Looking for a unique meeting space for your next corporate meeting? Tired of sitting at a board table all day with no windows? Trying to find a way for your team to get their creativity flowing?

Meet in Owatonna!

The Owatonna Arts Center is a unique setting for meetings, corporate events and team building. Century-old woodwork, historic chandeliers, and original art pieces provide the backdrop for your next corporate event. In addition, Owatonna Arts Center is located on beautiful grounds of West Hills where it once housed 10,635 “State Schoolers” between 1886 and 1945 — kids orphaned, abandoned, or abused and sent to the Minnesota State Public School for Dependent and Neglected Children in Owatonna, Minnesota. After your meeting, plan a team building activity reliving history through the Orphanage Museum with pictures, artifacts, and personal stories. Don’t miss the newly restored Cottage 11, State School Kids’ Memorial, Children’s Cemetery, Flag Pole Plaza, and Rock Garden. Our outdoor audio tour will guide you across the campus, with stories of children’s lives here.

*Space is available for many different setups for up to 125 people.
