    I have been visiting Louisville for 30 years & had no idea this museum existed. It is very weel done & interested tto the multiple generations of our family who visited with us.

    We had dinner and then looked at the art. For me, the quality of the art was outstanding and I have been in modern art museums in many international cities. The restaurant was also way beyond our expectations. The food was top notch/

    The absolute best place to take some crafty teenage girls. We had the best time creating our master pieces and laughing with the amazing staff. By far, the coolest way to spend several hours in downtown Louisville.

    Well spent hour wandering through the rooms of this highly organized establishment. It’s easy to miss a room so be deliberate and take your time. My only gripe is we could not figure out how to get to the parking area behind the store. Is it worth a visit - yes.

    The 3 of us (me, my brother and my sister) looked this place up on purpose while on our Louisville last-minute vacation. It exceeded our expectations. We spent hours looking around, enjoying the vintage clothing and wares. Each of us found an item with which we fell in love! (A have-to-have item!). This place could be an all day event. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

    plenty of parking, isles are kind of narrow but fairly laid out. A very wide variety of items. Highly recommend the area where local honey is.

    My husband & I had a blast here! Don't plan on just darting in & out - we roamed around inside for over an hour & could have easily taken more time. We're not even sure that we actually saw everything! If you name it, it's probably in there somewhere... Everything from leftover yard sale crap to EXPENSIVE home decor (even crystal & turkish rugs). It's more than an hour's drive for us but we plan to return at least 2 or 3 times a year just to see what's new (and what might insist on climbing in the car with us to add to our collections).

    Hint: there are maps strategically placed throughout the store. Use them! We started at the top & then worked our way back down towards the entrance. The maps were invaluable in helping us keep track of where we were - but even so I felt like I was lost in an unending fascinating maze a few times!

    Hint #2 - Be sure to visit the model train room! We stood & watched the trains for more than 15 minutes!

    The last time I was there it seemed a bit run down but today there were a number of good finds. Prices were more than reasonable than at many similar peddlers malls in the area. We came away with a few treasures and my wife was very impressed with the variety and selection of goods. This is a good sized mall that has a number of antiques plus the usual craft items. I saw only one booth that I felt should not be there. I can’t say that for most peddler malls. Once again, they are much improved over my last visit.

    We attended a wedding venue here in the Monet Room that was bright, airy and perfect for the occasion. There were
    enough tables and not too close together. The wedding reception was also in the same room after the ceremony which worked out well for the amount of people who were there. There were restrooms down the hall close to the Monet Room. There was convenient and ample parking. If there was one complaint it was that it was a bit noisy with all the conversation and the music. Otherwise, it went well.

    One of my favorite activities in Louisville! We were able to create unique glass art with Mark's guidance that we can treasure for years to come. We'll definitely be back for another unique, handmade glass art piece!

    I happened to be in the neighborhood and they let me look at the gallery even though it is closed on Wednesday. Beautiful exhibit. I’ll be back for sure

    There’s a Macy’s, Brighton’s, Lego store, Von Maur, Apple Store, Old Navy, Starbucks, etc. It’s clean, bright and airy with a good deal of parking. The exception is during the holidays when it’s brutal everywhere. Unlike many malls there’s really not a food court to speak of but there are some restaurants here. That’s not a major problem for me since I don’t generally eat at malls.

    Friendly staff. Decent pricing (comparable to similar stores we've been to). Great selection of items.

    From the road, it looks small but once inside you find that it opens into a much larger space & even has a 2nd floor.

    We'll be back again!

    I am a native Louisvillian, who loves horses, and am always looking for "different" things to give as gifts. Finding representative items from Louisville can sometimes be quite difficult especially if trying to buy gifts for the same people year after year. I am always looking for special items and found this particular store purely by accident.

    This week while having my monthly trip to the beauty salon in St Matthews, I happened to find the recent issue of Kentucky Homes and Gardens, I came across an article about Trace Meyer's Museum Bees. Seems Meyer has developed a wonderful way of making remembrances from "lost objects". He began using the left-over wood from frames and objects he came upon. From this beginning, it became obvious to him that this was something people wanted and would buy as he sold them, often all of his objects, at fairs.

    These unique frames may be old frames, or as the case of the one I purchased, part of a whiskey barrel. Using these for frames, he next adds objects, particularly bees and horses. People may bring in objects and he will work with them to create one of a kind frames for their possessions. I am considering taking an old broken Scottish Terrier pin to be mounted as I am a huge Scottie and horse collector.

    On the backs of each frame, Meyer places his insignia and the initials of the recent winner of the Kentucky Derby.

    Upon entering his store located on Lexington Avenue in St. Matthews, one is immediately welcomed by hospitable workers who are among the friendliest, most helpful people I have ever encountered in an antique shop.

    The choices are mounted everywhere on walls, placed on tables, and others in the process of being made. The hardest part is deciding which to buy.

    At fifty-five dollars, this is very reasonable for one of a kind Kentucky objects. It does not matter what size you select; all are fifty-five. And Meyer has an agreement with his customers I have never experienced before in my many purchases. At ANY time, anyone may bring his or her frame back and trade for another. I can't see myself doing this as I absolutely love my first purchase.

    There are also other reasonable priced items for sale. So, if you like seeing different things, and like bees and horses, give this antique store a visit when you are in Louisville. I guarantee you will be pleased and find it difficult not to purchase something. Enjoy!
