    Stopped but thought it would be a mild diversion at most. WOW! Really underestimated this fascinating place. Every room sucks you in. Elaborate train & amusement park displays that run smoothly and are fun to gaze at. Row after row after row of toys ranging over five or so generations. The Peanuts collection in the basement is so voluminous it’s disorienting! The hosts are friendly & tell great stories. Not a fancy curated spot. The displays are the thing.

    Bridge is beautiful! Unfortunately you cannot drive on it at this time, only walk. If they can get it back open to vehicles, it’s a five star attraction.

    Unique older building. Seats a little small and old. Enjoyed show very much. Ushers are friendly and helpful. However be aware that the streets in that area are all torn up. Expect delays in getting thru this area.

    Nice museum. Ive always like to come here to see the museum and see the person making different pieces on occasion. I like seeing the different glass pieces that’s offered. I wish there more variety as well to the area. Like fostoria, Fenton, and other local glass companies and independent makers

    The rooms at the Casino were on par with Motel 8 - no refrigerator, no coffee pot, chipped furniture, paper-thin quilt, no extra blankets. You get the idea. The food at the Buffet and the Food Court was outrageously over-priced and not very tasty. The casino was pretty good. The slots didn't eat your money, but paid-out on a fair basis and at least entertained you for a while. Best part of the trip was the bus ride!

    This is where West Virginia split from Virginia in 1863. It was also the capitol for a time.

    Lots of history and exhibits, and it’s free! I got there less than an hour before close so I didn’t get the full experience.

    The Oglebay complex is just wonderful. There is something for everyone from museums and mansions to all sorts of physical activities from rock wall climbing to miniature golf, regular golf etc etc. It's a great place for families of all ages. I went to all the museums, gift shops, zoo and had a delicious lunch. Be sure to get a wrist band to cover the cost of all activities. I can' say enough good things.

    This park is a nice walk along the Ohio River. There's plenty of benches to rest or eat a picnic lunch. Great views of Wheeling Island.

    My wife added this to our list of places to check out and it was very cool. It is not just a shop they have some good historical displays as well.

    The prices are reasonable for the locally made goods (no mad in china items that I noticed). There was glass, pottery, shirts, honey, syrup, bbq sauce, and much more all locally made. There was also a large selection of books about the area.

    I would recommend stopping by for about 15-20 minutes.

    The young lady working was nice and knew a ton about the area and we had a nice chat with her about how the town has been trying to reinvent itself.

    Beautiful grounds! Loads of benches, picnic tables and activities. We were passing through on cross country drive and stopped to picnic. If this is an example of how Wheeling cares for it’s community, it is a hidden gem! Well worth the stop.
