Jansen Art Center was renovated about two years ago I'm told. Wow have they ever done a wonderful job in renovating. The restoration, choice of colors on the walls, the beautifully restored wood floors, furniture and addition of the Firehall Cafe was a REAL TREAT! Each room displayed a different artist's work. Each room had it's own feel and personality.... More

What a great addition to Lynden. Loved the art on display, and admire the vision of the Jansens for creating not only a gallery but a hands-on learning center for arts of all kinds. The little cafe's a plus, though the food offered here needs refining and upgrading to achieve the sensory satisfaction of what's hanging on the walls--food can... More

The remodel of the old City Hall was a genius idea. Everything was done with high quality materials in a very tasteful and artistic manner. The rotating art shows have been worth the trip to the county, I wish more of my Bellingham friends would make the trip out there. Great classes available for all ages, there is a full... More

I was surprised to find this delightful creative retreat in the middle of small town WA. A feast for the eyes and spirit. Can't wait to take an art class.

Jansens spared nothing to make this building first class. The building is worth the trip itself. The art (all types imaginable) is a bonus. I also love the red leather chairs to kick-back with free wi-fi and enjoy something from the quaint cafe. I love the quiet. Why is every food establishment so noisy these days? Not here. Great staff.

Recently repurposed pioneer era City Hall building. Full of fascinating nooks and crannies. Beautiful, high quality art through out the building. It has artist studios, music and dance performing space. The gift shop has things you would be proud to own or give as gifts. My most recent visit was with my book club. We went to hear a lecture...

I can't speak for the programs they offer but there were some happy looking kids hanging around. There was some good art on display and a couple of pieces that blew me away. The building is full of little rooms and hidden areas open to just wandering around for a while which the friendly staff welcomed me to do even... More
