  • Great place with lots of history. Worth the trip. Be sure to say Hi to Kim when you go
  • So glad I stopped in and checked it out.
  • This a great place to go and learn about a piece of WV history. The young lady that works there is very knowledgeable about the history.
  • Really great museum. So much educational info about what happen in a small town so long ago.
  • If you are a Labor History person, this is a must for your to visit. Amazing exhibits and wonderful staff. Also, charming little town is a bonus.
