You will never find a museum like this anywhere else! This museum takes the visitor back in time to when the mothman terrorized the small town of Point Pleasant, WV. Did the Mothman really exist? Or was he just a made up hoax? You Decide.

Owner was very knowledgeable not only regarding the Mothman phenomenom, but other local history. Really wanted to share the information. Museum and shop were very clean and organized. Worth a stop.

My husband and I went for the first time with my parents a July of 2016 and enjoyed all the artifacts and the knowledge of what is believed to be Mothman, and of course the outside metal statue was great!

It's not a very big museum, and to be honest I wasn't really sure what to expect. It was definitely neat to look at everything, but be prepared to read a lot of newspaper articles. Took me and my mom about 45 minutes to walk...More

You can do your visit very quickly or if you like the story -much longer. It is worth time and money.

Depends on the kid...if your kids are bright and well-behaved, they will enjoy it. If they are ill-mannered and have the attention span of a knat, they will ruin the experience for everyone that is there.
