The Music Man Square Complex & Hotel

The Music Man Square Complex & Hotel will be an integrated hotel and convention center projected to draw up to 40,000 visitors per year. This unique, “Disney-quality” convention center will make it a crown jewel of the Midwest.

  • River City Streetscape is phenomenal – convention space will be unique in the world
  • Mid-market is a draw for meeting planners for both cost and attendance
  • Brings new revenue and tax advantages to Mason City

The complex will also include a permanent home for The Music Man Museum. The hotel, museum and convention center will be connected by skywalk for the convenience of conference-goers and guests.
