Visited this beautiful venue to see comedian Bill Engvall show tonight. He was so funny! It was a great show and the place was packed. The MAC is super nice theatre and is great tourist stop when in Eastern Kentucky. The venue is home to the Kentucky Opry. There are coal and art exhibits throughout the lobby area. You can... More

On Fri 23 Sept 16, my wife and I traveled to Prestonburg, Ky., to see Railroad Earth in concert at the Mountain Arts Center. Whatever I write will not do justice to the accoustics of the Center's auditorium nor to its incredible construction. All I can say is that, if you're driving by, you must stop at the Center to...

We have been to multiple concerts here. It has great acoustics and is small enough that there really isn't a bad seat.

This was a charming venue to visit: no performance was scheduled but I stopped by to see the exhibits and the brand new Ranier Racing Museum. I was fortunate to meet the Executive Director, Mr. Clayton Case, who kindly provided a tour of the Cedar Coal Exhibit and the musical instruments collection: from the Appalachian Mountain Dulcimore and Crystal Banjo...

A week or two ago I had the pleasure of going to the Mountain Arts Center for first time for a SOAR (Save Our Appalachian Region) conference. While at the centre I was enamored by both the beautiful art galleries as well as the history which the center itself held in regards to Appalachia. The venue is ideal for concerts... More

The mountain arts center is great. I went there to participate in the Shaping our Appalachian Region conference. I was able to go into the recording studio it was amazing. I was blown away by the auditorium for the plays. There is an outstanding platform for the actors.

After the conference, we had a tour of the Mountain Arts Center. The Center impressed me by its wonderful art galleries that reflect the natural and historical beauty of the region.... More
