“Go see the Artisan Center”

Wheeling Artisan Center
Ranked #11 of 50 things to do in Wheeling
Attraction details
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Another destination in any Wheeling stop that I highly recommend. It is more for adults as far as I could see, and plan to walk around for an hour or two to view all the crafts and historical exhibits.

There was an old fashioned brewery pub on the first floor that I did not go in but it looked enticing, the Artisan Center was upstairs in this older building that was obviously well maintained.
Lots of West Virginia history, crafts, etc to see.

As a boy sent here to retrieve "Colemans fish"on Fridays as a youth,there is always something to see,eat,shop,experience an original concept of a well developed Market-House from the 19th century.Colemans is still there and growing throughout the state,and still as good,famous to our area.As well,you owe it to yourself to visit the "Lebanese Bakery" a block east,been there since the 20's,meat pies(homeade from scatch everyday) and several types of Baklava using regional honeys with seasonal influences from flowers or the apple orchards.I'd drive an hour for these treats and have and will.

Good food in the restaurant on the first floor. The upper floors really only come to life during the Celtic Festival.

This is a combination of a store focused on items related to Wheeling and WV and a mini-museum of Wheeling history. The museum portion is designed around the lives of several characters from Wheeling history. It is designed for you to pick one character when you enter and then follow his or her life at each exhibit but I chose to read about every character at each exhibit. The museum exhibits are scattered through the shop. The exhibits gave a good picture of life in early Wheeling, focusing on several types of manufacturing and also providing information about labor history. The shop sells a wide variety of items and features several books about West Virginia that are not widely available. This is a nice stop for an hour or two while in Wheeling. There is no admission cost. It is located on the second floor of the building, just go up the escalator you see when you enter the building.
Parking is at meters on the street and we easily found a nearby parking spot on a weekday.
