F.A.Q. about the Flatwoods Monster Museum

What are your hours?

The Flatwoods Monster Museum is open 7 days a week. 9AM to 5PM on weekdays and 10AM to 4PM on weekends. We do often break for lunch. So some waiting can be expected around mid day.

Do you close for holidays, or close unexpectedly?

We do closed for some holidays, but not very many. The Flatwoods Monster Museum closes for Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year’s Day, Easter, and Thanksgiving. That being said, we operate with a small crew and illnesses and emergencies do come up from time to time. We try to edit our hours on Google should something irregular come up, so we always recommending double checking Google or just giving us a call before you start your trip or detour.

Where are you located?

The Flatwoods Monster Museum is located at 208 Main Street, in Sutton, West Virginia.

If I use a GPS to get there, will I get lost?

Possibly. For some unknown reason, in the town of Sutton, there is a Main Street, and a North Main Street. North Main is in no way connected to Main Street. It is a completely separate street in a residential area of town. Sometimes GPS’ will take you to 208 North Main, which is a private residence. In a nut shell… If you are traveling into Downtown Sutton, and your GPS tells you to turn left, don’t do it. Stay on the road you’re on and the museum will be in the next block to the right. You can’t miss it.

How much is admission?


Do you sell souvenirs?

Yes! The Flatwoods Monster Museum sells a wide variety of items, such as: Shirts, Hats, Stickers, Books, and much, much more!

Do you ship items or offer online sales?

No, the Flatwoods Monster Museum does not offer online sales or shipping services. However, most of our museum exclusive items can be found at Cryptidmart.com!

What is the parking situation like?

Free street parking is available. Please don’t park in the small lot beside of our building. We do not own it, and access to it must remain open.

Do you have public restrooms?

The museum does not have public restrooms. On week days from 8AM to 4PM closer rest rooms can be found at the County Courthouse one block down the street. Other can be found as well. However on Sunday nearly every place in Downtown Sutton is closed. We recommend stopping at a rest area or convenient store before visiting on Sundays if restrooms will be needed.

Can I expect a historical reenactment or story teller to entertain me when I arrive?

No. The museum has a very limited staff, typically with only one person working at a time. Staff members typically have a wide array of duties and they are also not trained actors or public speakers. The good thing is, between all the displays, the video monitor that plays a constant rotation of videos, and informational brochures, everything you need to know is avalaible and at your disposal. Plus, it’s free.
