What a fantastic display of magnificent local art! We very much enjoyed our meandering. Also, as it was pouring rain, we were grateful that it was all under one roof! But the prices definitely reflect the artisanship!

I love all the art you can buy and the art displayed. I always bring company here when they come to visit. I love all the different & fun Kentucky items that can be bought here. They also have a cafe if your hungry.

No admission fee. There is a restaurant you can purchase food.
Are some of the exhibits outside where we can have our dog on a leash or in the baby carriage.. We can't leave him in the car? Or what have others done

There are no outside exhibits. It's all indoors. Only service animals allowed. We left our dog in the car listening to his favorite music with the a/c on so he would comfortable. Best to leave a note inside the window too.

It's a trap. Admission is free but the temptation to buy the art is hard to resist. The art is unique and fairly priced. Food and drink also fairly priced. Great place to stretch your legs.
