Though this museum is small, it is well stocked with fossils and replicas. If you take the time to really examine the many artifacts and read all the available information, this visit is an hour well spent. The staff is super knowledgeable and friendly. My 14 year old son was quite impressed as was I.

I had read some of the other reviews and thought this place might be interesting for about 45 min to an hour. My wife and I couldn't even make it 10 minutes. Other than a few "replica" fossils of dinasours and some minor rocks I would suggest don't waste your time. Everything is in a one room area with one... More

I had no idea it was even here. Not very big at all but interesting for WV. Actual dinosaur bones on display and several... More

No one knows of this museum, including the people that work there. They were shocked that anyone would visit. That have some nice minerals and fossils, but no employee seems to know anything

We look for unexpected delights that are off the beaten path. When visiting the Morgantown, West Virginia area, travelers are likely to drive over Cheat Lake without stopping just off I-68 by the Lakeview Resort. A nearly hidden road passes below Lakeview and along the lake front to the headquarters of the West Virginia Geology and Economic Survey Office. Inside... More
