Very cool place to visit, and is a must stop spot on a Mothman pilgrimage. Loads of original newspapers, clothes, and film from the crash -- including a bunch of props from the movie. You can also pick up a Point Pleasant t-shirt while you're there to help support the museum.

I liked the museum and the town. Felt uncomfortable with the fact that they took a real life tragedy (the bridge collapse) and tried to tie it to the mothman mystery

Yeah this place is pretty offbeat and totally RAD! Seriously, the owner will tell you all about the Mothman mystery and it's got a fantastic selection of Mothman memorabilia.

It’s like, $3 to enter. Super small but worth it. Lots of newspaper clippings and detailed info and video on the Mothman sightings, the bridge collapse... and movie memorabilia!!! The gift shop is great and reasonably priced too.

Nice little museum about town history. We walked the river and visited the museum and watched the movie. Our 6 year old really enjoyed it as did we.

Great museum at a great price. So much to look at, my 10 and 13 year old got bored (but I like to read EVERYTHING). Great gift shop too
