We've been wanting to visit Point Pleasant and check out not just the Mothman Museum but also the statue and the places he was spotted for years. This weekend we had to travel to Southwest Virginia, and decided we were as close as we were ever likely to get, so we drove up. Super glad that we did! The museum is small but extremely thorough and the displays and archives contain really everything you could ever want to know about both Mothman and the Silver Bridge disaster. The museum owner Jeff Wamsley has been featured on the History Channel and my son was majorly impressed that he was there in person when we arrived! He was really nice and willing to talk to us in depth about Mothman very enthusiastically -- if the topic gets old for him, he does a good job of hiding it. He also gave us a map and directions so we could get to the places in town where Mothman had been seen. The gift shop is a nice mix of both charmingly cheesy (stickers, temporary tattoos, pencils) and really nice cryptid collectibles (poster prints by a local artist and handmade Mothman plushies). Everything is reasonably priced. The museum admission is beyond reasonable. Kind of a haul to get to Point Pleasant but we are glad we made the trip!
Did you know ,that the plan was to even create aMrs.Mothan,and rumor were TO HAVE A BABY MOTHMAN....ALL FOR THE TOURISM. JUST DONT APPROVE OF THE STORY,LIVED IN POINT PLEASANT SINCE 1957, GRADUATED IN 1968...KNOW THE PEOPLE ,WENT TO SCHOOL,:CHURCH,WITH THEM AND SOME OF THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS...SORRY, JUST DONT BELIVE...... .......
You even slightly interested in the Mothman? Why would you not visit this place? The owner of the shop gathered some of the definitive collections of first-hand accounts so if you don't have his books, it's a good idea to get them there and if he is working that day, a good time to ask an expert all your questions. Anyway, the Mothman is the best Cryptid in the US and this is the hub of it, so get with it and visit this place already. Where else you gonna do in this city? Burger King?
I was not originally particularly interested in visiting this place. But my stepson was and so I went along. I'd seen the movie so was interested enough to go along. It was a really great place to see. The admission was cheap (which actually had me worried) but found the articles and exhibits to be very interesting. I'm not a convert or a "believer." but they take a responsible, yet fun - even tongue-in-cheek at times, approach to presenting the story of the Mothmen. While at the museum, there is a "MUST SEE" attraction across the street along the river. It is a very well done mural painted on the river side of the retaining wall. I'm guessing it is 35 or so sections. It is excellent. I posted a few of them on my Facebook page and a friend also told me of another mural on the Ohio side of the river, too. We saw it in the rain and I can only imagine how majestic this would be in good weather. :-)
Great little, campy place for the paranormal seekers. Movie props & costumes from The Mothman Prophecy, John Keel, author who wrote about Point Pleasant & their sightings, men in black, newspaper archives w/tiny hole in the wall video room showing programs w/eyewitness accounts. Inexpensive, must see paranormal activity.
