Mothman Museum In West Virginia Just Might Be The Strangest Tourist Trap Yet
By Melissa Mahoney|Published September 13, 2021
I'm an east coast girl living in a west coast world. I grew up in New England before moving to SoCal for several years. I then lived in NYC or a year before moving to AZ in 2009. I worked in the entertainment industry for many years of my adult life and I love photography, writing, and traveling around the U.S. as well as to far-flung locations around the world! Travel is my life and writing about it is a dream.
West Virginia is home to some eclectic museums like the John Brown Wax Museum and the Castle Halloween Museum, but a museum based on folklore is just, in a word, strange. One of the strangest tourist traps throughout the Mountain State is one based solely on the legend of the Mothman, a bizarre red-eyed humanoid creature with wings. To learn more about this creature you’ll just have to read on and then make plans to visit the Mothman Museum in Point Pleasant.
