Great place to take a break. Clean restrooms, small cafe, lots of craft and art items for sale. Picnic area is available also. Kentucky items abound inside. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Are you interested in taking metals and creating characters? Then you will enjoy this. Otherwise you will be disappointed. Seems to be a waste of space for so little. I spent under 15 minutes here. Oh they also had jewelry.

We happened upon this during a leisurely drive to the Smokies. Once inside we gladly spent an hour as we looked over the wonderful creations made by local artisans. This place is similar to Tamarack on the WV turnpike. It is a beautiful building in...More

We stopped here for lunch while driving down I-75. It's not a very big place but it's a good place to browse local folk art for sale. Most of the items are high quality and that is reflected in the prices. There's a cafeteria there...More

A rest stop is rarely more than a few minutes' interruption to getting back on the road. Kentucky Artisan Center, Berea, changes the game plan with a gallery of works from more than 700 artists, a fresh-from-the-farm café and gardens. We spent an hour there...More

The place was exciting to visit. Many crafts from pottery, handmade brooms, soaps, and many more. Very artistic town to see. History of the Berea is well established. I will visit again

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.
