Even Locals Don’t Know About This Free Mini Fossil Museum Hiding In West Virginia

Did you know about the mini natural history museum in the lobby of the West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey Office on Cheat Lake? Most people don’t, but they should: even though it’s small, it has some impressive specimens, and it’s free!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
