The Appalachian Cultural Museum was closed by its owner, Appalachian State University over ten years ago. It's artifacts were then poorly stored and then dispersed back to owners. It was a poorly thought out and tragic decision.

This museum has been closed by Appalachian State University. It once exhibited important artifacts with informed commentary illustrating important regional characteristics. Its closing is a loss.

Featured local artisians, crafts and aritfacts. A bit expensive. Nice place to stop and stretch the legs and meet some local artists.

Visit this cultural museum for an insight to the vast and multi culturism of the Appalachian Mountains and surrounding area. I loved this museum!

Unfortunately, this closed several years ago and has not reopened, thanks to ASU politics.
