Watts Museum at West Virginia University holds first ‘Touch A Truck’ event


The Watts Museum at West Virginia University held its first ‘Touch A Truck’ event.

This event is also referred to as ‘mighty machines and more’ because of the broad variety of vehicles and machinery on display.

WVU curator, Danielle Petrak, said this event was free to the public and included a variety of hands-on activities for the whole family.

There was even a visit from Sparky the dog for pictures and hugs with the kids.

“It’s in conjunction with our current museum exhibit, which is about mine mechanization and the machines used underground in coal mines,” said Petrak. “So we have a lot of organizations that have brought vehicles and equipment here today for the public to enjoy.” 

This is the last of three events put on by the Watt’s museum as part of its spring event series.
