Mystery Hill - Heritage & Native Artifact Museums

category : Museums
A self-guided tour of four fun-filled areas. The Mystery House offers the challenge of a gravity room where the theories of Sir Isaac Newton are challenged. Stand at a 45-degree angle and perform several experiments. Once you start giggling, you can't stop! The Hall of Mystery includes over 40 mind-bending puzzles, hands-on experiments and illusions. Bubble-Rama is the perfect ending: put someone in a human sized bubble, play with the bubble wall or blow bubbles from fun-shaped wands.The Appalachian Heritage Museum gives you a look into the past of a prominent mountain family. 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 over a lifetime by R.E. "Moon" Mullins and his wife Irene. Started on the riverbanks of Georgia, their collection combines artifacts from 23 different states. The museum showcases nearly six decades of work fun. See arrowheads, jewelry, spears, stone tools, pottery, arrows, primitive clubs, eating utensils and much more.
