First thing to know - the KitchenAid website is infrequently updated and incomplete. It is not immediately apparent from their description that the "experience" retail store and the factory are two separate places, a few miles apart. There are also no details on the factory tour, so it helps to know that it costs $5 per person, everyone must be over 12, and you must wear completely enclosed shoes (no crocs, mules, sandals, etc.). Even the staff is pretty unclear about most of the details of the factory tours, which are offered only at 12:30pm Tuesday-Friday - but unless you are absolutely a die hard KitchenAid fan, not worth the hassle.

The "experience" is a very nice KitchenAid retail store with the expected cooking demos and a few refurbished and therefore slightly discounted items, plus the full line of colors that are often hard to find in other stores. There is also a small display of old mixers in the basement, which is interesting to enthusiasts. But by no means is this a general interest "attraction" - it is a retail store of current (and full MSRP) KitchenAid items.

If you are big into KitchenAid, nothing I can say will dissuade you from going - but if you are at all on the fence, skip this in favor of the many more interesting historical and natural attractions in the area.

Bus tours stop here for a reason. The store looks great, the selection is impressive. I don't cook, but I don't mind going because you can tell the quality of the equipment, and my wife loves it. We don't have one of each, but by looking in our kitchen you may think so.
Every year during our Annie Oakley festival, KE has a huge sale and I see people buying stuff literally by the skid full. If you have any interest at all in quality kitchen small appliances, you need to check it out.

So many Kitchen Aid products in so many different colors! Unless you were setting up a new kitchen, or had something specific to replace, it's still just a retail place.
