  • We were in town for a meeting and waiting for dinner at the Roycraft Inn. Wonderful crafts in the Gift Shop and the Museum is educational. Did buy hand made soap for $6 a bar and gave a donation also.  more »
  • What a wonderful find. The gift shop is located in the Copper Shop of the Roycroft Campus and is full of unique gifts and art work. While the prints might be a bit pricey, many of them can be found as...  more »

  • The person who said it's just a collection of gift shops is totally clueless. You have to PAY for tours (historic buildings don't repair themselves) to see the historic rooms or buildings that were used by artisans for furniture making, book making, printing, and glass making. Worth the $30 or so for a 2-hr docent guided tour. The grounds are lush and beautiful to walk, especially in the summer and fall.
  • Celebrated the Summer Solstice practicing yoga on The Roycroft Campus. Beautiful setting!
  • Great historical art by contemporary artists following the arts abs crafts movement.
  • Very disappointed to hear that you don't get to see artisan's at work, THAT would be educational...don't really care to pay $30. to see the "cell" where the artisan's used to live.
  • This is just a collection of gift shops. What a waste of time to visit. Very disappointing. Almost no educational value or signage. Disneyesque in it's blandness.
