Weirton Area Museum and Cultural Center


(304) 224-1909

The Weirton Area Museum and Cultural Center had its humble beginning in the year 1984 the community began hosting meetings with the goal of establishing a museum in Weirton to preserve the story of Weirton Steel Company and the rich history of our local area.                                      
WAMCC began acquiring many historical items from Weirton Steel Corporation, including Employee Bulletins, photography, paintings, and 16 mm movies. Since there was no museum building available, it was necessary to store and display these items at various locations throughout the city. 
Since 2011, the Museum has taken residence in the former Home Furniture building, located at 3149 Main Street in downtown Weirton. The building interior and facade were fully renovated and beautified.
Since its opening, thousands of families, individuals, and tourists from around the world have visited the museum. The interest in Weirton's unique history continues to grow, as does the Museum's collection. 

$5 for Adults, free for children and members.
