WV Culture Center & State Museum

Voted Best Museum by wv living readers, the WV State Museum was recently renovated and offers visitors a glimpse into the state’s rich history. Admission is free and a new smart phone app provides an interesting way to tour the facility. 

The archives and libraries allow visitors to research their genealogy going back generations and the theater is home to National Public Radio’s Mountain Stage, which has boasted such musical talent as Dr. Ralph Stanley, West Virginia native Kathy Mattea, REM, Arlo Guthrie and Sheryl Crow.
