Our Story

At the Museum of Appalachia, read the stories of a hardy and resourceful people. Share memories between parents and children, grandparents and grandchildren. Spend time in the Hall of Fame, our tribute to the Appalachian people. Walk through the Display Barn and marvel at the ingenuity of our ancestors. Stroll rustic paths to the cabins—or simply rock on the porch and enjoy the picturesque view. Hear musicians playing old-time music… watch farm animals grazing peacefully in the fields... enjoy a home-style lunch… browse regional crafts in the gift shop.
The Museum of Appalachia is “an American treasure that stands alone as a tribute to the American spirit. It is about family, country, hard work, and respect for tradition.”

- Harold Closter, Director, Smithsonian Affiliations
