  • If you are in Point Pleasant then you have to go to this place. It is small but packed with stuff to see and cool mothman swag. The ticket is inexpensive and the owner is cool. The museum is worth it....  more »
  • Keep an open mind when you visit this small quaint museum. The events actually occurred but interpretations may vary. A $3 admission admits you into a room that describes the events from 1966 and 1967...  more »
  • Well worth the $3.00 admission. So much information about the infamous Mothman and the bridge tragedy. Lots of photo ops . Friendly staff and a really cool gift store.  more »

  • Loved the museum. I find the mysteries of this small town exciting. First it started with a video from Dan Bell on the Lowe Hotel. Then it led to me looking up the places around town finding the museum and me watching the Mothman Prophecies movie. I find Mothman and since seeing the museum these so called men in Black fascinating.
  • Absolutely so much fun! Super friendly staff, very knowledgeable about Mothman. The museum was a very fun spot to stop for a break from traveling! Will recommend to friends passing through.
  • Fun day hunting down an urban legend! The exhibit was well curated amd super informative!! From the hand written witness statements to the videos - it was all super neat to check out. The men in black are watching!!!! Be sure to check out the statue outside for a fun photo op
  • Pretty neat little shop, can be a bit pricey on items but it's a small business. The worker was very nice to us and didn't rush us out even though we showed up ten minutes to close. Answered all our questions and was very friendly. My friend loves mothman and this made her whole year to come here.
  • This unique shop/museum is a must for all things Mothman!! Allow yourself extra time to peruse in the extensive museum with plenty of exclusive photo ops! I was there during the "off" season, and the town shut down pretty early. Just make sure you call ahead and verify hours of operation.
