Stadium Information

About Target Center:

Opening in 1990 and most recently renovated in 2014, this arena and is mostly used for basketball and concerts. It's known for being the first North American sports arena to have a green roof that captures nearly 1 million gallons of storm water to prevent drainage into the Mississippi River.

Tour Info:

Tours are not being offered during stadium renovations.

Security Screenings:

Like almost all US and Canadian Stadiums, you will need to enter through a metal detector before entering the stadium.  Be sure to give yourself extra time and don't bring any weapons or devices that could be seen as a weapon inside.  Pat down searches may be required.

Bag Policy:

Diaper Bags and medical bags are permitted. All bags larger than 5"x9" such as backpacks, suitcases, beach bags, etc. will be prohibited from entry into the arena.  All bags are subject to inspection before entry.  For more information, visit the stadium website.

Parking Options

There are approximately 25,000 parking spots between 38 lots near the stadium. Ramp A (7th Street Garage) and Ramp B (5th Street Garage) are physically connected to the stadium via a skyway walk on level 3.

The 20 bus will drop you off at the stadium. Several other bus lines have stops within a few blocks of the stadium. Please visit Metro Transit to plan your trip.

Tip: Be sure to tell the driver before you pay your fare that you will be riding only within the Downtown Zone to avoid paying the regular fare. If you ride outside the zone, the driver will ask you to pay additional fare.
