  • 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.
