Bigfoot, Nessie to star in Maine's new Cryptozoology Museum

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Bigfoot is coming to downtown Portland.
Loren Coleman says his International Cryptozoology Museum will open in a Congress Street storefront on Nov. 1.

As a cryptozoologist, Coleman studies creatures that have been reported to exist but aren't formally recognized by science.

Among the displays will be his 8-foot-tall, 400-pound Bigfoot sculpture, which now stands on the front porch of his home. He'll also have a model of the Loch Ness monster, along with what he says are a footprint cast and hair sample from the Abominable Snowman, found during a 1959 expedition in the Himalayas.

Coleman, who has written 17 books on cryptozoology, tells the Portland Press Herald the museum will be in the rear of a new bookstore that will specialize in supernatural fiction, horror fiction and weird fiction.

I'm looking forward to the museum, even if its in the other Portland. I offered to volunteer to illustrate a mural for the new museum, after all I am a paid published professional Illustrator, and avid Bigfooter, but never heard back from Mr. Coleman. I even shared a link to my illustration blog, I wish him well and you can always donate to his cause through paypal. His donation page is here

  1. Thank you posting this.

    I appreciate your interest in the mural project, but needless to say, I replied first to those who were close enough to actually be able to volunteer their time. If you can make it to Maine, do get in touch, as your work is quite good. I am still working my was through the list, packing, and moving. So much to do, and so little time.

    Finally, I am grateful for your link to donations, but it doesn't work as you have posted it.

    Folks can go to the museum announcement here, International Cryptozoology Museum, and use the "Donation" button at the bottom there, please.

    Best wishes,

  2. Thank you Mr. Coleman for the comment! Many apologies for the broken link and it had been corrected.

    I know I speak for everybody at the Bigfoot Lunch Club; we appreciate your continued contributions to cryptozoology and congratulations on the museum!
