Went to folk art and it was fantastic. We met Bill Mets in his shop. He was building another creation. I hope he survived the flooding, the place is right next to the river. Great place to go and identify the parts of cars or trucks that he used to make his creations. Loved the place and highly recommend it for a stop on your trip

100% worth the stop! I absolutely loved the sculptures and the whimsy Bill Swets employs to each item - whether it's the Schultz tribute or a grinning Dino - these sculptures are a must see!

This is a neat place to get out and stretch your legs. We went really early in the morning and the sun was barely up so we did not see anyone else but the girls were glad to get out and stretch their legs. There is a short path surrounded by interesting up-cycled metal sculptures along the river. Would be a good place to bring a blanket for an interesting picnic.

Good place to get off and stretch your legs. Art work is cool. Parking is a bit weird so keep your eyes open

We went there a few years ago and thought it was brilliant, very unusual and he certainly has a vivid imagination.

This was a fun stop for our family. The sculptures are very unique and most are superbly done. Well worth your time.
