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
