The Pump House Regional Arts Center, located in the historic La Crosse, Wisconsin water pumping station, offers a wide range of visual and performing arts activities. The Pump House contains three visual art galleries, the 144 seat Dayton Theatre, art education classrooms with kiln and ceramics workspace, a conference room and meeting areas. It is a fully handicap-accessible and smoke-free environment.
The Pump House is a nonprofit organization that has maintained the building at 119 King Street as a cultural center since 1977. Funding is provided in part through private donations and memberships as well as assistance through the United Fund for the Arts and Humanities (UFAH). Further generous support is received from many area businesses throughout the tri-state region. Projects and programs are also supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Visit the Pump House for exhibitions, classes, concerts, performances, poetry, theater and more! Most exhibitions feature artwork for sale and the facility is also available for private event rentals.
We invite you to make the Pump House your home for music, art, and theater.
