  • This museum is historic in itself, being built during the depression. It houses a huge assortment of local and mountain heritage implements. A great chance to view real log cabins.  more »

  • Solo morning in Old Fort at Mountain Gateway Museum It was a solo trip down to Old Fort, NC to check out Mountain Gateway Museum. The museum has a couple of exhibits called, "A Thousand Words: Photographs by Vietnam Veterans" and "Inspiration in the Mountain: Writers & Western North Carolina" that I wanted to see. The exhibits were good. The staff was very kind and helpful. While not the biggest museum, it was full of charm and style that only be founds in the mountains of western NC. Just like the quaint little town of Old Fort, NC where the museum is located. The museum has a history of its own. It should be visited.
  • Interesting photos with descriptions. Really old houses that were open to visitors got browsing through at your own pace. Staff was knowledgeable about the museum pieces and history. Plenty of books about local history as well as brochures about other local historical sites and general activities
