  • Interesting stop along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Nice bit of history of American Folk music with informative staff and excellent displays. Worth a visit.
  • 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!
  • A must see and make sure you attend a concert.
  • Enjoy sitting around in the shade listening to bluegrass.
  • My bluegrass knowledge is extremely limited, but I can say I learned quite a bit after 2-3 hours in the Blue Ridge Music Center museum. Lots of displays, music, and video presentations give you the lowdown on the history of Bluegrass music. Even if you're not a fan of bluegrass music itself, the history alone is worth checking out. Sadly, I visited on a Sunday morning and no live music was happening then. I would come again for a show.
