Blue Ridge Parkway Stop

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

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.

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.
