Memorabilia from the movie the Mothman Prophecies as well as reports and encounters from Mothman sightings and the Silver Bridge Collapse. T-shirt’s and sweatshirts for sale. The place is a little dusty and the staff was not very friendly.

Very interesting and plenty to learn. Can watch movies about the mothman and watch interviews from people who have seen the Mothman. Learn about the survivors of the Silver Bridge collapse from interviews from the survivors themselves.

Hokey albeit interesting and absurd little museum in an out of the way place. The statute of the mothman alone is worth a visit

Depends on the kid...if your kids are bright and well-behaved, they will enjoy it. If they are ill-mannered and have the attention span of a knat, they will ruin the experience for everyone that is there.
