Iike being in a museum. Mostly art as opposed to arts and crafts. Local artists display their work for sale and there are some beautiful, fanciful, even whimsical pieces available. Prices are relatively ambitious. It is a fun experience. There is a snack bar too.

We stopped for lunch and the art on our way south. The center has a large space featuring the gorgeous arts and crafts of Kentucky, and it is awesome, with prices comparable to other stores featuring these items. The cafe is at the far end...More

When traveling down I75 this place is a great stop to use the restroom, stretch your legs and do some browsing. It is by no means a replacement for the wonderful shops Berea has to offer, but a great place to start.

Realizing we'd not visited here in several years, we dropped by on our way from Lexington. It's a very, very nice venue. It truly showcases Kentucky made items and crafts. All are for sale of course. It has an "artsy" atmosphere as it should. Items...More

Some weekend days a craftsman will be on site to demonstrate his/her skill. It’s a nice place to purchase gifts. Very clean and neat place to stop.

A great place to take a walk, browse around the shop, beautiful hand crafted art work. Dine in the cafeteria! Use the clean bathrooms.

While the Artisan Center is not nearly as big as I thought it would be, it was so full of quality crafted product that the size did not matter. Two hours was plenty for both my wife and myself. The snack bar served good food...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.
