About

History

The Clay Center for the Arts & Sciences of West Virginia opened on July 12, 2003. The Center, a 240,000 square foot structure, houses performing arts, visual arts and sciences under one roof – one of the few of its kind in the country. Located in the state’s capital city of Charleston, the facility is home to the Clay Center’s Avampato Discovery Museum, the Juliet Art Museum and the Maier Foundation Performance Hall, home of the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra.

Mission

The Clay Center’s mission is to inspire creativity, learning and wonder through experiences in the Arts and Sciences for all people of West Virginia and the region.

The Clay Center remains one of the most ambitious economic, cultural and educational undertakings in West Virginia history. The Clay Center enhances the region’s “quality of life” and enriches the lives of all West Virginians.

Hours

The Clay Center is open to the public Tuesday – Saturday from 10:00AM-5PM and Sunday from 12:00PM-5:00PM.  Some exceptions apply for observed holidays.
