Best place I've ever visited! Michael was so knowledgeable and kept the museum open forty minutes past closing so we could discuss cryptozoology. Also, he let me take photos of his library collection to begin research myself! Best part of my trip to Felton, for sure. Please stop by!

Bigfoot stuff.

This guy is the best! He busted out some of his doctorate publications on Bigfoot for us to look. Great guy, fun place!

Bigfoot Museum

Sadly, the Bigfoot Museum has been closed on every single trip we've made over the hill to Henry Cowell Redwoods SP. We love hiking here and keep thinking eventually we will catch the Bigfoot Museum open. Proprietor seems to be as elusive as the squatches.

Call ahead!

Bigfoot Discovery Museum

Fun location, especially if you're a Bigfoot fan like my boyfriend. The owner/curator is very passionate about his collection and research. Free admission, but small donations ($2-$5) are encouraged and worth it especially if you get to talk to him. If you're lucky, maybe he will show you his own video footage!
