For the past 11 years, American Art Awards has decided the 25 Best Galleries and Museums in America. Among the criteria: years in business, industry reputation, online activity, location, size, exhibits, educational programs, represented artists and references from artists, clients and visitors. Only one per state per year is selected.

American Art Awards: “Acknowledging a rich 125 year history of collecting, preserving, presenting, promoting and documenting West Virginia’s every aspect of culture, art, paleontology, archaeology and geology, American Art Awards selects West Virginia State Museum as the Best Gallery Or Museum In West Virginia, 2019, and one of American Art Awards 25 Best American Galleries / Museums, 2019. We admire their deep devotion to representing all its people and industries, and in such a systematic, thorough and educational way. Great exhibits, informative — and a visual treat.”
