  • There were almost more props from the movie then there were from the actual event, however the collection of newspaper clippings, storytelling, and photos where exactly what I would expect to come to such a museum. Whether you believe in the mothman or not, the museum serves as an adequate testament to the events of the silver bridge collapse. We brought a group of Boy scouts here on the way through to the summit high adventure camp. they had a great time listening to some of the stories over summer camp and also looked forward to experiencing the museum. It was a good visit.
  • My wife and I had a good time, but it appears that the proprietors are banking on the reputation of the Mothman to carry the museum, rather than making a really well put-together place. Some of the props are displayed kind of haphazardly, some of the props seem cheap, although the original documents of the Mothman sightings as well as props from the movie were really cool to see. Definitely check it out if you're in the area, but don't expect the atmosphere to match the subject matter.
