The Museum is currently headquartered in the historic LaBelle Theater at 311 D Street in South Charleston, WV.

Since 2004, the Museum has been presenting new and rare West Virginia films. With world premieres of landmark films about our region and state we have attracted hundreds of people to our programs. Many educational programs and events have also been held for school groups.

Community support is vital to the success of continued programming. Please contact the museum today to find out how to become a Museum member.

    We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
