The West Virginia State Museum is dedicated to inspiring, educating and enriching the lives of the public by instilling a deeper understanding and sense of pride through the collection, preservation and exhibition of diverse cultural and historic traditions, focusing on every aspect of West Virginia history, culture, art, paleontology, archaeology and geology from all geographic regions - representing the people, land and industries.
Throughout the museum, West Virginia’s story is shared by traveling through a series of scenic environments that represent a variety of places significant to the state's historical timeline. Visitors hear stories of West Virginian history as they travel through time to each of the 26 Discovery Rooms along the Show Path.
