This Super Unique Museum Hiding In The West Virginia Capital Is Literally A Trail Through Time

If you happen to be visiting the state capital in Charleston, there is a hidden gem waiting beneath one of the buildings in the capitol complex, and you may not be aware it even exists until you stumble upon it. But once you do, you will find one of the most unique museums in the entire state.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. 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. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Once you come out the other side, you will have viewed more than 6,000 artifacts and will find yourself much more knowledgeable about the state you live in and how it has changed over the last 300 million years.
