The campus restoration is showing results! The Roycroft Inn remains the centerpiece, but the reconstructed Power House now has a visitors' center and the Copper Shop has a great collection of artisan works. Walking tours of the campus available.

Having been an avid fan of the Arts and Crafts movement in this country for most of my adult life, while passing through Buffalo, NY, on the way to visit in-laws, I was very excited to learn that East Aurora was within easy driving distance (about 20 miles). We decided to spend a couple of days there, and did a... More

We took a walking tour of the campus and had a wonderful tour guide who did an excellent job of informing the visitor about the history and legacy of the Roycroft school. The tour money goes to the refurbishing and upkeep of the original campus. You dont go into any building save for the Copper Pot where the handmade items... More

We had tried to plan for several years to come here and finally made it. Seeing what took place here during the Arts & Craft era was fascinating. To know the Roycroft craftsmanship still exists is awesome.

Always nice to wander the Roycroft Inn and the surrounding area. The history here is interesting and the on-going renovations will make it even better. The Copper Shop gift shop has lovely, although expensive, items and many are from Roycroft master artisans. Check out the Roycroft website for maps and times of shops and museums before you come.

Just an amazing place ... incredible that so much of the campus has been preserved. It is not perfect, it's not a Disney experience, there is still much work to be done. But all the bones are there and it's an extremely important cultural resource. TAKE THE GUIDED TOUR! Ours was terrific, and you will get so much more out... More

I'd been here before half a dozen years ago but this time there was less to see. The grounds seemed under construction and the donor sidewalk unkempt. The highlight was a well stocked gift shop with a nice bit of history as you enter. The staff was grumpy, and when I took a photo of these tiles (posted here), was... More

Roycroft was smaller than I'd expected by the area is beautiful. It's worth the time to get a cup of coffee at the hotel, walk around the neighborhood and definitely visit the 5 and 10 cent store -- it's great. The majority of the architecture in the area is Victorian and it's very well maintained. The few arts and crafts... More
