Welcome to The Museum of Appalachia!

 

The Museum of Appalachia is a living history museum—a pioneer mountain farm-village that lends voice to the people of Southern Appalachia through the artifacts and stories they left behind.

Roam our 65 picturesque acres and experience a recreated Appalachian community complete with: 35 log cabins, barns, farm animals, churches, schools, gardens.

Over 250,000 artifacts in 3 buildings, with vast collections of folk art, musical instruments, baskets, quilts, Native American artifacts, and more.

The Museum contains a Restaurant, a two-story Gift Shop, and hosts many special events throughout the year.

Founded by John Rice Irwin in 1969, the Museum is now a non-profit organization, and a Smithsonian Affiliate museum. Visit our “About Us” tab for more info.
