As previously stated, it's a great way to kill some time in Morgantown. We hit up Ruby & Ketchy's (a local restaurant) for lunch and this is located right down the road off of... read more

I had read some of the other reviews and thought this place might be interesting for about 45 min to an hour. My wife and I couldn't even make it 10 minutes.

No one knows of this museum, including the people that work there. They were shocked that anyone would visit. That have some nice minerals and fossils, but no employee seems to know anything

We look for unexpected delights that are off the beaten path. When visiting the Morgantown, West Virginia area, travelers are likely to drive over Cheat Lake without stopping just off I-68 by the Lakeview Resort.
