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.

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