As a composer of both respected symphonic works and widely popular songs, Meredith Willson has earned a place in the annals of 20th century American music.

Music Man Square reviews
Meredith Willson’s house is located behind the square. They have also created the “Main Street” of River City. It looks just like it’s out of the movie. The museum has a ton of Meredith Willson...

Beautiful environment that can host so many different types of events in such a beautiful space. Thank you to all of the donors that make this place possible and preserve such a vital piece of the River City's history
Overall Such cute place to visit, especially if you love musicals! It’s a great place to visit if you have about an hour to waist. A definite place to visit if you are near Mason city or passing by the town! The only thing I think could be improved upon is 1) Making sure the “interactive” parts of the museum would actually operate 2) a sign stating the house was currently under construction 3)having more real shops, which would improve the aesthetic of the place. 4) storing/ hiding their Christmas decorations, which was placed in the back of the museum
