West Virginia State Museum / Cultural Center [WV]

The West Virginia State Museum and Cultural Center opened in 1976 in order to showcase West Virginia's artistic, cultural, and historic heritage. While the lower level of the museum is presently closed for renovation, the upper floors are still open to the public, and visitors can view the art and history exhibits in the Art Gallery, the Lobby Gallery, and the Balcony Gallery. In addition, the State Archives Library and the offices of the Commission on the Arts and the State Historic Preservation Office are also housed in the museum.

The site offers visitor information, information on all current exhibits and galleries up in the museum, as well as several online exhibits, information on all grants that the museum is working on, an events calendar, a store, and information about West Virginia's Division of Culture and History.
