The Folk Art Center houses really cool art and craft items from local artist which has no fee for admission or parking. On the 1st floor, all of the art and craft items are for sale. The 2nd floor is mostly for viewing. It is a great place to visit, especially if you are inbetween activities. It's worth the visit.

If you are traveling and in a bit of a hurry, this is the place to stop. You will get a complete overview of art and artists in the mountain area and the beautiful as well as creative things the produce. From quilts to pottery and back again.

If you are on the Blue Ridge Parkway definitely stop here. It doesnt take long to see, but is full of beautiful handmade items (I especially loved the quilts). Besides the crafts for sale there is a nice gift shop of parkway and NC souvenirs.

I enjoyed the Folk Art Center which displays local artisan's crafts. Not just a museum. You can purchase items as well.
