BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – The Raleigh County Veteran’s Museum in Beckley is getting ready for its opening season this weekend, March 11-13.
To celebrate, the museum will host a Civil War living history demonstration; there will be no fee for admission. The museum’s focus is to drive up membership numbers; they hope the opening event will help them achieve their goal.
“The main reason we’d love to have the public come out is to experience the Veteran’s Museum, become a member of the museum, see what all the museum has to offer, and to just be a part of their community and share in their community,” says the museum’s curator, Patrick Parker.
The cost of membership will be discounted during the opening weekend and will be $15 per person.
