Berea is the heart of an artisan revival. At this easy-on/easy-off stop on I-75 KY arts, crafts, and artisan foodstuffs are featured. A bit pricy, however, some prices are very reasonable. Designed like a Vegas Casino that requires a path through the casino for almost...More

My mother-in-law and I visited the Kentucky Artisan Center last weekend. It was the first time for both of us. It wasn't exactly what we expected, but we still enjoyed it. It was a nice way to pass the time and see some local artwork....More

Not really what we expected. The wares sold there are very nice, more like museum art and priced that way. Of course there are jams and jellies and soaps that don't break the bank, but many items are pricey. I am sure they are priced...More

Just stop at the Kentuckian Artisian Center and you've seen it all! Very good food there. A trip into town just wasn't what the brochures make it look. Few shops were open and they all had the very same things (which you could also see...More

If you don't have time to go into town, this is the next best thing, with a good representative sample in one building. (I highly recommend spending a couple days in Berea and environs, though.) Books by local authors, music, pottery, weaving, carvings, furniture, and...More

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.
