Fodor's Review

This 92,000-square-foot complex in downtown Asheville houses the Asheville Art Museum, Colburn Earth Science Museum, and Diana Wortham Theatre. The YMI Cultural Center (also a part of Pack Place), which focuses on the history of African-Americans in North Carolina, is at 39 South Market Street. The 54,000 sq. ft. Asheville Art Museum has 9,000 works of art and architectural drawings and stages major exhibits several times a year, with some highlighting regional artists. The Colburn Earth Science Museum displays local gems and minerals. The intimate 500-seat Diana Wortham Theatre hosts musical concerts and dance and theater performances year-round.
