Lots of construction in the area. Easier to park on the main side and walk through the restaurant to get to the entrance.

Bigfoot and Yeti.

International Cryptozoology Museum

All tips from before July 1, 2016, are invalid. We've moved to Thompson's Point, a spacious new entertainment venue with hundreds of parking spaces, on a peninsula sticking out into a river emptying into the Atlantic Ocean, at the edge of Portland. We've designed and built a new museum building just for us and you, our patrons!

[Loren Coleman, 05/02/2017]

Loren is an author and the visionary who created the museum. Its new location sounds as if it has excellent access to the sea -- handy if a Kraken surfaces nearby.
