Absolutely lovely architecture using Kentucky limestone. Friendly staff, very clean restrooms and beautiful representations of Kentucky crafts. Café was very clean and comfortable. Plenty of parking and wheelchair accessible. Will definitely stop anytime we travel I-75.

A good place to stop while traveling through along I-75. Locals frequent the cafe because of the Kentucky food offerings at a reasonable price.

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.
