A self-guided tour of four fun-filled areas:
The Mystery House offers the challenge of a gravity room--stand at a 45-degree angle and perform several experiments.

The Hall of Mystery includes more than 40 mind-bending puzzles, hands-on experiments and illusions.

The Appalachian Heritage Museum gives you an idea how mountain families lived in the early 1900s. This 1903 home belonged to the Doughertys, who founded Appalachian State University.

Finally, your tour ends at the Native American Artifacts Museum which boasts 50,000 relics. The Museum houses the most extensive collection of Native American artifacts put together during a lifetime by R.E. “Moon” Mullins and his wife Irene. Their collection combines artifacts from 23 different states. See arrowheads, jewelry, spears, stone tools, pottery, arrows, primitive clubs, eating utensils, and much more.
