The mission of the Washington Pavilion is to inspire, educate, entertain and enrich our region by creating opportunities for all to explore and experience the arts and science. Our vision is to be the region’s premier arts and science destination, inspiring lifelong discovery and inclusive experiences.
The Washington Pavilion is the region’s home for the arts, entertainment and science. Located in a beautifully renovated historic building in downtown Sioux Falls, it is one of only a few facilities in the world to bring together under one roof the performing arts, visual arts, interactive science and educational opportunities.
The Washington Pavilion makes art and science part of the lives of thousands of people with daily events and activities. The Washington Pavilion features Broadway touring shows to intimate chamber recitals in two state-of-the-art theaters in the Husby Performing Arts Center; more than 100 hands-on interactive science exhibits in the Kirby Science Discovery Center, rotating educational and mission films in the unique Wells Fargo CineDome and regional and national exhibits ranging from South Dakota artists to notable national and interational artists in the Visual Arts Center. Additionally, the Washington Pavilion offers quality educational events and programs through Camps and Classes and Graham Academy Preschool as well as delectable delights at Leonardo's Café.
