Youth Museum of Southern West Virginia


The Youth Museum of Southern West Virginia is a great place to get a panoramic view of the region's history. While its name suggests the Youth Museum is aimed at a younger audience, both adults and kids will find their visit to the museum enjoyable and informative. In the museum's Heritage Center, you'll find reproductions of a period mountain homestead, a moonshine still, blacksmith shop, two-story loghouse, schoolhouse, barn, and a country store. The museum also features hands-on exhibits and a planetarium. It's open daily 10 AM - 6 PM from April 1 to November 1, and Tuesday through Saturday 10 AM - 5 PM during the rest of the year. The museum is adjacent to the Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine in New River Park. Take I-77 exit 44.
