This is a must visit to get information not only about Grandfather Mountain, but also about the High Country in general.

The Nature Museum showcases gems, rocks, and wildlife found around the area, as well as an exhibit on life of Daniel Boone, the famous pioneer and adventurer. Outside in the lounge, there was an exhibition of the wildlife photographs with hilarious captions, such as a caption for a photograph of an otter read 'Otterly hilarious'.
