About OUR FACIlITY
Just a few miles north of George Vanderbilt’s grand Biltmore Estate is a different kind of mansion–one that was nearly 50 years old when Vanderbilt’s crew began construction in 1895. This house is now home to Asheville Museum of History.
Located in a historic home, the first floor of the museum is ADA accessible and contains our permanent and changing exhibits. Our behind-the-scenes tours require climbing stairs.
After parking, follow the signs to the ADA accessible entrance at the rear of the house.
Coming Soon – Scan a QR code to follow a narrated audio tour of the museum exhibit.
