worth a visit

Wide selection of local made crafts and other tourist stuff. Good history and guide of the area. Prices are a bit on the high side for local made crafts.

You have to say Art since every item is an original piece of Indian work. It is worth the trip to stop & see what wonderful pieces are available. They have everything from jewelry, woven baskets, wood carvings, wood bowls plus to many others items to mention. If you buy a piece they give you the history of the artist... More

I had read about this place and wanted to make sure my husband stopped for me to explore the shop. So thankful that we did.

Entering the arts center you are immediately taken to a different time and place. Amazing hand crafted art of Cherokee yesteryear. Some hefty prices but you will know why but too some good deals. Well worth the visit and time!

Nice place to see the talented crafts made my local artisans. Beautiful baskets and other things for purchase, but it was a little expensive for our taste. But, we enjoyed our visit and would recommend it to others.

Had a lot of pretty exhibits show pottery, basket weaving, etc but nothing was going on the day we stopped in so it was a little boring and the stuff that was on display was pricey

This place has lots of items for puchase hand made by the Cherokee. Beautiful pieces. They also had a "museum" of older items not for sale.

This is a wonderful display of all the Cherokee handmade crafts, which you can purchase. The beadwork, baskets, instruments, and wood crafts are very beautiful. Some of the items are reasonable priced. The baskets are expensive. For a tiny basket is $20 and the medium basket is $50-100. The beadwork is reasonable and some of the old work is reasonable.
