The mission of the Reece Museum is to provide an understanding of Appalachian culture and its importance in civilization by celebrating the people and places of Appalachia through the permanent collection, exhibits, and public service programming.

The Music Room is a permanent exhibition at the Reece featuring an interactive kiosk produced by the Center for Appalachian Studies and Services. With over five-and-a-half hours of videos contained in three "electronic scrapbooks" (The Early History of Country Music in the Tri-Cities, My Ballad Book, and Country Music and Community in the Tri-Cities), the kiosk includes videos of local musicians Jimmie Rogers, Jeanette Carter, Scotty Stoneman, and many others.

The Reece also has three galleries for rotating art and history exhibits. Please click on Current Exhibitions to see what is on exhibition now.
