We came to see WWW Monday Night Raw. The coliseum was clean and so we're the bathrooms. Staff was very helpful when we needed assistance finding the location of our seats.

Although the Coliseum is an older building in Richmond, you can still enjoy Venues there. I saw KISS there last year and it was pretty much the same as when I saw them there back in the 70's. You can still enjoy anything from a...More

This venue is very outdated and needs updating. It also desperately needs cleaning. The seats are disgusting. There aren't enough food service areas...the lines are long. And the selection of food and drink are lacking.
