  • There are multiple shops you can visit while at the Ozark Folk Center. Each one has a skilled artisan demonstrating their work. I love the basket shop, broom shop, and pottery shop. My boyfriend enjoy...  more »

  • Craft Village was nice. The reason why I am giving such a low rating is because I did not expect a State Park to charge me $15 a person to enter into Craft Village which is basically shops to spend money. Granted, the shops are all super awesome with local amazing artist. We purchased several very unique items but why would I need to pay admission fee in order to spend money? I could have understood a state park entrance fee of $5.00 per car which is common with state parks but $15 per person at the entrance of Craft Village (in the gift shop) is excessive. Especially since the park consisted of nothing but Craft Village.
  • Amazing place! The staff is all so incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, not to mention patient with young children! We arrived close to closing time and instead of making us pay again the next day, the staff advised us to just come back the next morning and touxh base with them. The family pass is absolutely the way to go, if you're in a group of two adults and two kids! I cannot rave about this place enough!!
  • Love stepping back in time, to a more clean simple life. The craft grounds are fun to see how things use to be. The night shows feature local old time music without a bunch of junky lyrics. Good place for families.
  • They have nice craft village. They teach you how things use to be done. And the entertainment is good. I love their live music performances. And they have a nice restaurant right on the premises.
  • Great place to bring your family. Friendly staff and dog friendly. A great place to pick up a unique gift or souvenir.
