Most West Virginians Have Never Heard Of This Fascinating Quirky Museum

When it comes to off-beat roadside attractions, this often overlooked museum could probably be at the top of the list in The Mountain State. It’s located in Charleston on bustling Kanawha Boulevard only a stone’s throw from the Patrick Street Bridge – yet most people never see it.

While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately.
