The Mothman Museum In West Virginia Is Not For The Faint Of Heart

In the 1960s, there were many strange sightings of a mysterious creature flying and lurking around West Virginia. The creature was said to be the size of a man, with huge wings and large, glowing red eyes. The appearances began to center around Point Pleasant, West Virginia, until December 15, 1967, the Silver Bridge collapsed and caused the death of 46 people. Some say the mysterious creature was a warning of the impending disaster.

The wealth of information here is sure to be a little spooky to even the most skeptical among us.

The Mothman Museum is open most days of the year, and admission is just $3.00 for adults and $1.00 for kids ages 10 and under.
