The Appalachian Cultural Museum

The Appalachian Cultural Museum, part of Appalachian State University, was created to foster an understanding of the people of the Appalachian Mountains and to serve as a laboratory for new museum ideas. Through exhibits, publications, and special events, the Museum presents the rich traditions of the region. The Museum gives new meaning to life in western North Carolina in a manner that is authentic and non-stereotypical.

Curiously, the Museum's exhibits are currently closed for the foreseeable future although the Museum continues to conduct its various cultural and educational activities. Efforts are being made to eventually find a suitable new location in which to house and display its exhibits. But for now its exhibits can only be seen online.
