On our first visit to Charleston we make a point of stopping by the Cultural Center. We spent about 90 minutes reviewing the history of West Virginia dating back thousands of years. It wasn't long enough. If you go, try to set aside about three hours to get through all the exhibits... they're very educational and totally free. We didn't have the grandchildren with us but other families with kids seem to be enjoying themselves. Currently there are displays of handmade quilts that are very impressive.
