while its probably a great place to visit during regular times most of the artists work from home nowadays and only few rooms were open.

In scientist factory Art Center is situated many little artists and shops and separate stalls and Door. There’s a second floor and third floor as well. Which one of these has a little shop against the hallways here. Even the stairwells have art integrated into the side rails and between the stairs. You’re a Missile torpedoes along the hallways in the different sections and floods of this art center. It’s also dog friendly indoors. There’s even a scale, in case you wanna know how much you gained during your vacation. Definitely a center to spend a couple of hours browsing all of the shops inside.

This was the place to go on a hot day. The artwork is interesting and diverse. The people working the art rooms were friendly and there were only a few people in each room if any. This is worth a stop if not the best stop on the historic tour route. The best thing is that it's free and has cool air conditioning and clean bathrooms. The artist work is expensive and you must have an appreciation of the artist's journey to accept the pricing. Not one piece seemed overpriced.

The Torpedo Factory offers the chance to see artists creating art. Artists seem to keep their own schedules, but their hours are generally posted on the doors of their rooms. The pieces range from quite affordable to quite expensive, and just about every type of art imaginable is represented -- ceramics, oil painting, collage, metal work, jewelry, etc.; there's pretty much something for everyone, and probably even something for people who don't think they like art.
