  • Collection of newspaper clippings and Richard geres chapstick, glad it is cheap
  • I was so excited to be there! Its exactly what a museum should be for such a cult following such as the Mothman. They are playing documentaries telling the story of the sightings and the bridge tragedy, it had tons of news articles about the incidents, and fun props from the movie The Mothman Prophecies. The gift shop was awesome! So many cool things and it was hard not to get 1 of everything. To my surprise when we walked it, it was quite busy! I had imagined it not being so but the whole little area was bustling with fun shops etc. I was expecting more from the staff to be honest. I was expecting some interaction with the guests, telling stories etc or even having looks on their faces that even showed they cared to be there. That part was disappointing. If you walk down to the bridge memorial, when you see the sheriffs on the left hand side, turn. My friend and I kept walking down the road because there was no sign to point it out. Its definitely worth another trip again!
  • Lots of fun! Plenty of photo ops and a big gift shop. I'll definitely be going back. One word of caution: download your directions to get out of Point Pleasant before you get there because cell signal is non-existent. Makes for a fun adventure, though! And it was totally worth it.
  • - a really cool museum to look around and they have a cool gift shop as well with stickers, shirts, books, mugs, and lots of other things. - prices for Merchandise not bad at all and the prices to get into the museum is $4 a person. - place was clean and organized. - staff were really friendly and had good attitudes. - parking pretty easy to find in the area. - lots of cool things in the area around the museum as well to see and check out. - overall a cool experience and I would definitely recommend this location.
  • I think everything was good considering the corona crisis
