We visit this place every time we are in Lucas. While it is small, exhibits are interesting, and there always seems to be something we cannot live without in the gift shop. We like to think the admission and any purchase made here will help assure that outsider art remains viable in this friendly little town and elsewhere.

Interesting art with small gift shop. Prices were reasonable but little inventory. Offers a tour for $7 which seemed a little pricey to me.

This is one of two places I would want to live after I retire. This tiny community is such a mecca for the handmade.

If you are interested in one of a kind, quirky art pieces, this is the place to come. Will never look at "junk" quite the same again.

This is an interesting attraction as long as you're already in Lucas to see the Garden of Eden, but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it otherwise.

Well worth the time to visit and see the stunning folk art on display. This is a real gem and I can't see how anyone would leave disappointed after a visit.

It was a nice sized museum for a tiny town, but I kept seeing the same concrete with pieces of colored glass in it. There were a few different things, but I think "folk art" itself is really just for the creators hobby and not for being oh and ahhed at. Of course you could say I "just don't appreciate... More

You can easily spend a day in Lucas or more. We had a wonderful tour of the Grassroots Art Center and my daughters definitely left with an appreciation for all art. There was even an interactive game that they were able to play.

The gal was a bit pushy and would not let us even look in rooms. She allowed us to look only while she was there and she was getting ready to leave. I'm sorry, but art is only sold if we the buyers can see it!

Well worth the stop, but a bit pricey for the tour. Some of the art is phenomenal and it all is thought-provoking, although I found some to be just strange! Extremely knowledgeable and friendly tour guides. The stonework outside is beautiful!
