Great Venue in downtown Muskegon
I had my wedding reception September 2019 on the third floor in the ballroom. Everything was amazing and went as planned. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the event coordinator did a great job! I had about 110 guests and we had half of the ballroom, and it was just the right amount of space. I would definitely recommend this venue.Sent on 02/24/2020

Love, Love, Love the elegance and charm that the Frauenthal Center has to offer. The diversity of venue's can fit every event.... from the stage, to the 2nd floor art gallery to Johnson Hall. It's all there - located in the heart of downtown Muskegon with lodging right across the street you can't go wrong.
