This is a must for mountain music aficionados. Located outside of Galax, Virginia, on the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway, plan to spend some time browsing in the well done Mountain Music Museum. It includes the history of mountain music, instruments, and influential people of past and present in this genre of music. The display is interactive in some parts, has some great videos, and a great explanation of the evolution of this type of music. All of it is housed in a beautiful building and well cared for grounds. There is even an amphitheater.
Some days of the week there is live music demonstrations and music jams for the public.
The National Park Service representatives were friendly and knowledgable.
