All the information you ever wanted on the Mothman all in one place. Different mediums, video, newspaper clips and even the original handwritten accounts from those who first saw the Mothman. Nice gift shop and beautiful walking trail along the river nearby.

Reasonably priced and entertaining. A little short on educational value but fun. Lots of movie memorabilia

Cute little museum and gift shop dedicated to the story of the Mothman. I bought t-shirts at a fairly reasonable price for the family. Go there if you want to help Point Pleasant's local economy.

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.
