PORTLAND, Maine (Wireless Flash) — Even after all these years, Bigfoot still knows how to draw in a
Loren Coleman, a leading cryptozoologist, just opened a new museum in Maine dedicated to curious creatures like Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, and the Yeti.
The International Cryptozoology Museum is housed in the back of The Green Hand Bookshop. It features Coleman’s personal collection of unusual crypto artifacts including an eight-foot Bigfoot created by an artist, Bigfoot poop and hair samples, and skulls of other mystery animals.
Though most visitors inquire about Bigfoot, Coleman’s goal is to keep folks “open-minded” about various cryptids. He gives daily guided tours and presents evidence to visitors proving that these weird creatures really do exist.
Coleman is happy to have his collection in a public space since for years he ran the museum out
of his own home. Now that his eight-foot Bigfoot has moved out, he has much more room to entertain.
