Support the Museum


Welcome to The Museum of Appalachia!

"We simply cannot appreciate where we are today, or understand where we are going tomorrow, unless we understand  where, as a culture, we've been in the past.

These are our people.  They are world renowned, unknown, famous, infamous, interesting, diverse, different, but above all, they are a warm, colorful and jolly lot, in love with our land, our mountains, and our culture. May their memories ever be preserved - not  so much in reverence to them but as a gift to us and to generations to come."

John Rice Irwin, Founder

The Museum of Appalachia is pleased to announce that it will participate in #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving, which is scheduled for November 29. The Museum's goal for this special one-day fundraising campaign is to raise money for its Pioneer Partnership program - a fun that helps to cover admission costs for students at Title I, or low-income schools, in our region. 

Here's the link that will take you directly to the page where you can donate to the Museum's Pal Pal Giving Fund account:
