Pine Bush UFO and Paranormal Museum.

Pine Bush UFO and Paranormal Museum

Did you know Pine Bush is the capital of alien sightings on the eastern seaboard? Well, get ready to learn a lot more about that claim.

This museum may seem small from the outside but it's actually packed with dioramas, animatronics, audio-visual presentations, and at least one mysterious shaking platform. There's a whole section where animatronic aliens pop out of tubes, followed by a paranormal section where Big Foot and a collection of "shadow people" jump out at you during spooky presentations. There are no fewer than four short films about alien and paranormal sightings in the Pine Bush region (The whole town has kind of a lazy alien theme going on in deference to the museum).

If you're lucky, the proprietor, Lance, will give you a personal tour (He was wearing a three piece suit and newsboy cap at noon on a Saturday when we visited). No photos allowed inside, but there is an alien abduction photo-op at the end where you can take pictures.

I cannot emphasize enough how insane of an experience this museum is. Me and my friends have been talking about it for more than a month since we got back.
