Full of History and Full of Life!


In 1998 The Appalachian Cultural Music Association (ACMA) wanted to educate the public about the history of music our region gave birth to a long time ago. Thus, The Mountain Music Museum was born. Now, The Mountain Music Museum is nestled in downtown Kingsport Tennessee. With exhibits from such legends as Tennessee Ernie Ford, Dr. Ralph Stanley, Flatt and Scruggs, Archie Campbell, The Carter Family and more, there’s no end to the musical treasures to be uncovered.

The Mountain Music Museum is also home to the long running Pickin’ Porch Show. On any given Thursday night, you can see a variety of Bluegrass, Americana, Old-Time and Country acts from around the corner or around the world! With names like Ralph Stanley II, Larry Sparks and more! Tickets are $15 for advance tickets and $20 at the door and can be purchased at engagekingsport.com, or at the Mountain Music Museum, 316 Broad St, Kingsport, TN (see our map below).

The Mountain Music Museum, full of history and full of life!
