Museum of Appalachia

The internationally acclaimed Museum of Appalachia portrays an Appalachian farm-village with some three dozen historic log structures, exhibit halls filled with authentic Appalachian artifacts, and gardens and farm animals in a picturesque setting surrounded by split-rail fences. Known for its personalized displays, the Museum tells the stories of the Appalachian people in their own words and through the artifacts they left behind.

A large gift shop features handiwork from regional artisans, and a small restaurant offers hot lunches, fresh‐from‐the‐garden vegetables, and mouth‐watering home-style desserts. Facilities are available for weddings, reunions, meetings, and other events.

The Museum is a non-profit organization.  Its mission is to preserve Appalachian artifacts and to instill in the community—regionally, nationally, and internationally—a greater knowledge of and appreciation for the Appalachian heritage.
