Reviewed April 16, 2018 via mobile

We’ve stopped here many times when we are travelling from Florida back to Canada. We just love the place. Each year we make a purchase but if I lived in the area, I’d be there often to buy gifts, home decor, jewellery, fashion accessories, etc. This year we took home some lovely pottery. Many talented artisans have their work for sale and everything is well made and beautiful. Pieces are nicely finished. There are some unique pieces. The prices reflect the quality of the work and there are items and prices for every pocketbook. It’s fun to look, that’s for sure. Congratulations to whoever chooses the art work for sale, you are doing a great job.
The building is nicely placed in the landscape of the area. There are restrooms for travellers to use. There is a cafe but we have never stopped long enough to eat there. The inside and outside are immaculate.
This is quite the rest area when travelling on I-75 and if you enjoy arts and crafts, please drop by. It’s a nice break and a great place to stretch your legs and maybe do a little shopping. There are many talented sculptors, knitters, potters, jewellery makers, etc., etc., in Kentucky.

Saw symbol on the map when looking for a rest stop while traveling west. This was the best rest stop ever. Very nice building with a cafe that offers a surprising menu. It is filled with beautiful arts and crafts made in Kentucky. You could spend hours here. If you are traveling I-75 take exit 77, I don't think you will regret it.

We have stopped at the Kentucky Artisan Center several times while passing through the area. We enjoy a break from driving while being amazed at the talents of the artists.

Heading back to Ohio from Florida we wanted to take a break and saw the signs for this center and decided to stop. Boy were we surprised!

This place is lovely!! It is a large facility that has a huge assortment of artwork and crafts from local artisans. There is a place to grab a bite to eat, in good weather you could sit outside, the restrooms are the cleanest I've EVER seen and they even had flowers on the counters.

What a breath of fresh air on a roadtrip that is full of friendly kind people. Great job Kentucky. We'll be back!!!

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.
