World Scouting Museum of West Virginia



In 1996, Dr. Robert Lynn Horne created The Robert Lynn Horne Foundation, a non-profit foundation with the goal of establishing a world-class museum in Las Vegas, dedicated to preserving the rich history and heritage of the Scouting movement. Two years later, the Foundation began doing business and in early 2002, the Foundation's name was officially changed to the Las Vegas International Scouting Museum. Dr. Horne's goal was partially met with the opening of the Museum's temporary facility on Charleston Blvd. in June 1999. The Museum moved into a new 13,000 square foot building in November, 2012. This allowed us to exhibit much more of the Museum's collection (currently over 200,000 artifacts) and to store and protect the portion not currently on display. The museum moved to Charleston, WV in 2023.
