Residents and visitors alike have a plethora of entertainment choices both within the heart of the city and just a few miles from downtown. Theater arts are available at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres or just a short four-mile drive to the Old Log Theatre in Excelsior, Minnesota. If sitting back with a large popcorn in hand and taking in a show on the big screen is more your style, the Chanhassen Cinema multi-plex theater is the perfect place.
Several arts education options are available for both the young and the young at heart, within the community. Chanhassen is home to performing arts schools in dance, theatre and music education.
One of the most exciting additions to the Chanhassen community is the construction of a new 33,000 square feet regional library. This library (architects drawing below), opened in August 2003. It is the largest in Carver County and is a spectacular addition to the downtown area. Some special features of the new library include computers dedicated to Internet access, a teen room, and a soundproof media-listening area, as well as a fireplace, ideal for an afternoon spent curled up with a good book in a comfortable chair in front of a cozy fire. For information, or hours of operation, call 952-927-1500.
