Visit our site

The Museum of Appalachia, a Smithsonian Affiliate, is a living history museum--a pioneer mountain farm-village that lends voice to the people of Southern Appalachia through the artifacts and stories they left behind.

Roam our 65 picturesque acres and experience a recreated rural Appalachian community--complete with 35 log cabins, barns, farm animals, churches, schools, gardens, and more. We have tens of thousands of artifacts in 3 buildings, with vast collections of folk art, musical instruments, baskets, quilts, Native American artifacts, and more.

The Museum also has a restaurant, and a two-story gift shop.

A non-profit organization, the Museum’s mission is to preserve Appalachian artifacts and to cultivate a greater knowledge of, and appreciation for, Appalachian heritage.
