The museum houses the personal collection of Stephen Barcelo, who believes his neighborhood is frequented by Bigfoot. The wall of the building has a Bigfoot painted on its exterior, as well as a flying saucer beaming up a cow.

Cryptozoology and Paranormal Museum

A small yet fun attraction, in the front two rooms of a historic home, and largely related to Bigfoot. The owner is extremely friendly and was great with my autistic son. I had to buy a mug and t-shirt, because how often do you go to a museum of this sort? Take your picture in the giant Bigfoot cutout in the front yard.

Cryptozoology and Paranormal Museum

The museum is celebrating the acquisition of a new life-sized Bigfoot statue and is expanding the display space allocated to the paranormal topics. Stephen Barcelo, himself a journalist who covers paranormal subject matter, is very talkative and willing to share from his experiences in the field.

Cryptozoology and Paranormal Museum

Littleton is a town of 650 people, an unknown number of souls, and apparently Bigfoot. The museum offers nightly walking ghost tours and ghost hunting in a haunted house, complete with a mysterious murder with the blood evidence to prove it. Bigfoot outings are also offered periodically, including overnighters at the Medoc Mountain State Park.

The family who runs the museum is very entertaining. They like to talk, which is a good thing since the museum is in its infancy and much of the local history is oral and is still being gathered from others in the town.
