  • This is a fun and interesting place to visit, whether you believe the stories of the mothman or have seen the movie/read the book. They have a great statue of the mothman right outside the museum. The...  more »
  • Kitschy, silly fun. My kids had been dying to go here since we moved back to West Virginia, so we came to check it out. Really great gift shop (that's probably as big as the museum itself) with all ki...  more »
  • The museum itself is quite small and has tons and tons of articles and things to read. I usually don't like to read plaques/info at museums, but since this really peaked my interest, I did read some -...  more »

  • I've been there twice, the last time during the Anniversary Mothman Fest. Being a museum owner myself I always look for the unique tourist spots and this one was great! Clean, well lit and we'll designed gift shop and museum! A+++++
  • A very interesting experience. Be sure to read the witness reports and explore the area of the sightings! Perfect for a road trip destination!
  • 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. :-)
