Create an itinerary including Music Man Square
The Music Man Square is about music, fun, nostalgia, historical preservation, and community pride. But more than that, The Music Man Square is a tribute to the genius of one of America’s favorite storytellers and songsters, Meredith Willson. 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. The Music Man Square, a 40,000-square-foot facility features

an indoor 1912 River City Streetscape, a replica of the Warner Bros. movie set for The Music Man. Enjoy a treat from the ice cream parlor, shop for unique music themed gifts in Mrs. Paroo's Gift Shop, and reminisce by touring the shops and storefront displays. In addition, The

Music Man Square is a delightful, unique setting for meetings, dinners, receptions and many other special occasions.

  • 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
