  • Wear comfortable shoes because this museum is large and packed with awesome exhibits. It is laid out so well and there ate some interactive displays along the way. I actually went back a second time.....  more »
  • The kids ages 9 and 11 really enjoyed the museum. When we first arrived we grabbed the museum's scavenger hunt and after that we did the geocache hunt. I think the geocache hunt is what got my 9 year....  more »

  • Love this place. I go every year. A great mix of state and national history. West Virginia has an amazing history during the civil war. It's free and a great place to learn history from fossils to modern day. They add things every year so it never gets old. Definitely a must do if your in the area.
  • What a wonderful experience. You can just walk through or spend all day reading all of the very interesting things about West Virginia. They have done a wonderful job putting this together. I was proud to bring my family here who were visiting from California. I think they were impressed.
