Friendly, knowledgeable staff and a cooool story. A must-see if you visit Point Pleasant, regardless of your belief in Mothman.

i go to the Mothman festival every year in September, so I must see the museum while I am there. I try to take new people with me every year, it makes the trip so much fun.

We lucked up on this neat gem and must admit that we were intrigued! It is a nice area but it was a little difficult to find parking. Very nice shop and it did inspire us to watch the movie!

Never heard of the Mothman before today. Very fun and amusing. Not for the cynical. Well worth the time and money. Spent just over an hour walking around, sitting and watching all documentaries. Will watch the Mothman movie on Netflix. Nice documentary on the collapse...More

Very well done with a variety of information on the history of the phenomenon experienced by this small town. They not only have a lot of information from the time, but many other items including props and photos from the movie.

The museum is small but within it's walls is a huge amount of information concerning the movie, The Mothman Prophecies, The Silver Bridge collapse and The Mothman. The staff are very approachable. I will return.

Stopped here the day before the Festival - very small exhibit, but was informative. Enjoyed the photo ops with the Mothman replicas.

You can do your visit very quickly or if you like the story -much longer. It is worth time and money.

Depends on the kid...if your kids are bright and well-behaved, they will enjoy it. If they are ill-mannered and have the attention span of a knat, they will ruin the experience for everyone that is there.
