While in East Aurora today doing some holiday shopping we went to the Roycroft..Campus. The artist that were there all had very nice high quality items but it really wasn't my wife's or my taste. We enjoyed the day there and the Copper Shop was very nice . I watched a demonstration by a glass artist and it was very... More

The Roycroft Museum campus has been growing and developing and still has some work to do. We enjoyed the museum in the old power plant building and it gives a pretty good overview of the Roycroft colony; though I suspect novices will feel a bit lacking of background history. The self-guided walking tour is in development and was pretty good.... More

Our home is done in American Arts & Crafts so we really enjoy everything the Roycroft Campus has to offer.

We took the 2-hour tour, which I recommend if you are interested in Elbert Hubbard and the Roycrofters. More buildings and features are being acquired and restored. Watch the PBS video on Hubbard before you go if you don't know about his life and work. Really evocative of the community that once thrived here. Don't miss the gift shop!

The tour price of $15.00 is excessive, especially since it is completely outside without any access to the interior of the buildings. Guide was well informed on the history, but could have at least gone into the lobby of the Roycroft Inn. Copper Shop renovation makes a fine gift shop, but not allowing photographs inside is disconcerting. My advice is... More

Wonderful display and overview of the work of the Roycroft artisan community founded by Elbert Hubbard. This utopian community housed coppersmiths, glassworks, printing presses and potters permitting a glimpse into the Arts and Crafts movement in this country. Wonderful to see the many fine examples of copper works, stained glass, woodwork and illuminated printing. We were thrilled to poke around... More

As amateur students of historical communes and of the Arts and Craft Movement, my wife and I made Roycroft a destination on a trip to upstate New York. What we found and learned was beyond our expectation--an extensive site with a combination of restored and under-restoration buildings that alone told the story of Elbert Hubbard and the Roycroft Movement, but...

We've been visiting charming East Aurora for years and we always stop by the Roycroft Campus for a good dose of arts and crafts! The Copper Shop is a wonderful source for pottery, prints, tiles, furniture and more. The visitor center has an interesting exhibit about Elbert Hubbard and the legacy of printmaking on site. Don't miss the Roycroft Inn... More

You feel that you have been transported back in time when you enter the campus. Surround yourself with a variety of artists and craftsmen. Treat yourself to one of the docent-led tours to reveal the vision of what founder Elbert Hubbard had started in this community. The architecture is what drew my eye's attention. Being a builder, it is very... More

Wonderful artists'enclave and home to the arts and crafts movement. Plan plenty of time in order to see and expeirence all the campus has to offer. We were fortunate enough to visit on an event weekend that featured many artisans showcasing their handiworks.
