This is right off the highway and a must stop. Great place to just stretch and enjoy the beautiful creations inside this building. Lots of handmade craft items, yard decor, food products, and paintings. There is small cafe indoors and restrooms for your use. The outside grounds are very pretty and lots of free parking. We like to just enjoy... More

The Artisan Center is full of products from the most creative artists in Kentucky. So much to choose from: fiber art, stained glass, pottery, jewelry, garden sculptures...you won't go home empty-handed. .

We did not eat here, just shopped. I thought it was worth a quick stop. Large selection of art and crafts from a variety of artists at various price points. It's location close to the interstate and huge parking lot make it an easy stop.

We stop here every time we come or go to Tennessee because it breaks up the drive on I 75 and there are clean restrooms, drinking fountains, tourism brochures and maps, and a snack bar. The center is also open until 6 pm even on a Saturday in April while many businesses close at 5. The crafts are skillfully made... More

The girlfriend wanted to go here. So we went. There was a few small shops we visited. She has fun. It was not my think to do but she loved it. I am not the art type of person. It was a fun time. Everyone was nice.

This is a beautiful stop, just off I-75, in the Berea area. Fantastic displays and selection of items for every taste and budget. Beautiful workmanship on display for everyone to enjoy. Looked like it was just newly remodeled. Even has a café where you can sit and people-watch. Would make a good stop on a day-trip to Berea and environs.

Lovely place to stop; wide assortment and variety of good for sale. Many different artisans have their work here. I found the prices higher than most other galleries or shops in the area. The quality and workmanship of the items was beyond reproach; there are many items one wouldn't see anywhere else--which is part of the draw for me going.... More

Just off the interstate, this is a place you've got to see if you have any interest in local arts, would like a small bite to eat, and/or a clean restroom. You will be amazed at the quality and variety of art displayed, and the prices are reasonable.

This caters to tourists and gives a reasonable idea of what the area considers local fare. The "deli food court" is at the far end of the display and marketing area. Prices for food are reasonable; hours for food service vary. Located just off and visible from I-75; an information desk just inside the building's entrance provides information on more... More
