  • Great for the history of Oil & gas as well as some other connected history.
  • The Oil & Gas Museum has a surprisingly diverse collection of items related to the oil and gas industry in the Little Kanawha Valley, plus a lot of Parkersburg industrial and early West Virginia history. Definitely worth seeing if you are in the area.
