We never miss a chance when heading down South to stop at the Artisan Center. There are really unique items to look at and buy. We enjoyed the best muffins for breakfast at their cafe.

Many interesting art and craft objects representative of Kentucky artists. Some artists work was displayed well and saw more pieces at the Log Cabin Craft center of these artists. Enjoyed the visit.

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.
