    Awesome museum with live bluegrass folk music. There's something going on everyday and it's free which is amazing in itself for the quality of the facilities and what's offered. If your by there and don't go at least for a quick visit you'll miss out on something very cool

    I never knew this was on the parkway until this trip. My kids and I enjoyed live music, knowledgeable guides, and a ton of information about music of the Appalacia region. Factor in the beautiful location, and you realize that this is one of the best stops on the Blue Ridge Parkway!
