The Craftsman House is a combination of pottery studio, art gallery and cafe. The studio is used by professional potter Stephanie Schorr and there is always a variety of mugs, bowls and other pieces in varying stages of completion that visitors can view. The gallery is housed in a fully restored bungalow that is typical of the architecture in Kenwood. The gallery is representative of over 300 artists and has hundreds of pieces of blown glass, jewelry, turned wood, fine pottery and much more. The cafe has a small menu that includes coffee and other drinks, pastries, salads, sandwiches and soup. Truly, the Craftsman House is a delight for all five senses.
The Holocaust Museum is a somber place, but an overall positive experience nonetheless. Here, museum visitors can view artifacts from victims and survivors of the Holocaust, including letters, photographs, art and even a boxcar used to transport the Jewish people. The museum also hosts travelling exhibits from other museums on a rotating basis.
