very nice.

Have been a few times for different event. Starting to have more classes for kids. Makes for a nice outing with a picnic basket. Something for locals to be proud of.

I'm not a big shopper, so didn't buy anything, but we had a nice browse and really liked the jewelry and the wooden drum. There was a local woman purchasing gifts for someone, which was nice to see. Not just for tourists. I hope that the artisans get more recognition by being showcased here.

I always enjoy a trip here as they have artisan-made crafts from all over the state. Pricing is fair and variety is large. Take a couple of hours and walk through!

It was very interesting to see the many different and unique handcrafts made by Mississippians. Items are also available for purchase. We are looking forward to a return visit soon.

We went out of our way to stop here, hoping to find maybe some antiques or hand made items from locals. They had very little 'stock' and although a young gal who worked there was friendly enough, there wasn't really anything at all that got our attention. Lots of pottery that looks like everyone else's pottery, a few quits, some... More

Google said they opened up at 9 on Sundays. We drove 20 minutes to try to see them early when they opened at 9. They were closed. The sign at the road even said open daily from 9-5. What a complete disappointment. Guess we will be leaving Jackson without seeing this attraction. And I still need to buy gifts!!

I had no idea this place even existed! We stumbled upon it while motorcycling along the Natchez Trace Parkway. The attendants were warm, inviting, informative and helpful. There is a beautiful display of artistic items made mostly by local artists, info on the artists and various items available for purchase. I was pleasantly surprised by this hidden gem in Mississippi!

This is one of the most reviewed places in Ridgeland. We found a great deal of unique items. Some really unusual metal work and sculptures. Greeter was knowledgeable of places to visit in the area. Our entrance back onto the Natchez Trace Parkway was nearby. The quality of the items offered was surprising for such a rural area, shows the... More

The lovely modern building hosts a wonderful gallery that sells a wide variety of art. The items range from textiles to wood creations and a wide variety of pottery. A great place to find that special gift.

First of all, a warning: if your Garmin takes you to the site of the sports and agricultural museums, you are at the old location of a few years ago. I turned to my iPhone and successfully found the Center, about 7-8 miles away. Next, at the Center I was pleasantly greeted. There are brochures for visitors of the area,... More
