Cryptozoology Museum

Facebookcryptozoologymuseum

Loren Coleman first started pursuing unusual, often inexplicable animals in 1960, and has since become one of world's foremost experts in field of Cryptozoology. Discipline, as defined by master himself, is study of hidden or unknown animals. These are usually larger zoological species that, to - date, remain unverified by science, such as Yetis, Bigfoot, Lake Monsters, and Serpents, as well as hundreds of other yet - to - be - found animals worldwide. It also encompasses studies of animals of recent discovery, such as coelacanth, okapi, megamouth shark, giant and mountain gorilla. Throughout years, Coleman has amassed unrivaled collection of specimens, replicas, and artifacts relating to famous and lesser - known cryptids, including eight - and - ahalf - foot tall, 300 - pound Crookston Bigfoot, life - size coelacanth, replica of P. T. Barnums Feejee Mermaid, and much more. Exhibits also include cryptid hair samples, fecal material, and footprint casts. Colemans International Cryptozoology Museum preserves and presents collection to public in fun and educational manner while acknowledging that Cryptozoology is gateway science. Cryptozoology is capable of sparking next ' interest in more popularly - accepted exploratory and research - oriented disciplines like biology and anthropology. Besides, as Coleman assert, it is not really issue of whether or not one believes in Yetis or Montauk Monster; for belief belongs in providence of religion. Coleman focuses on exploring unexplainable with open mind, gathering evidence before accepting or denying any larger theory. Update as of April 2020: Museum has to Thompsons Point location.

Portland, Maine Loren Coleman made his way through small conference room at Clarion Hotel in PORTLAND, browsing through tables of vendors who were selling such things as plaster casts of Bigfoot footprints, crochet dolls of Loch Ness Monster, and posters of Champ, fabled sea serpent that is said to haunt Lake Champlain in Vermont. His movement was slow, for Coleman cannot move more than few feet before he is stopped by someone wanting to engage him in conversation, ask his opinion, or just thank him for, well, everything. It was spring Saturday, and vendor room was packed with people because there was break in speaker program at fourth annual International Cryptozoology Conference here, which was being held short walk from International Cryptozoology Museum. Coleman is man behind both, helping to make PORTLAND into world capital of Cryptozoology study of hidden and unknown animals that have yet to be verified by science and to make 71 - year - old Coleman into as much of celebrity in field as Nessie and Chupacabra. When FBI recently released its Bigfoot files, Coemans phone rung off hook with calls from world media. Looking back over 60 years, since I was boy in Decatur, Illinois, chasing large bird sightings, it is amazing how central we 've become to this field, Coleman said as yet another person interrupted his path to ask him question. Coleman, who has white hair and white beard and soft warmth of someone who would make good Santa Claus, has long heard his name prefaced with phrase worlds foremost living cryptozoologist, latest step on journey that began in 1950s when he saw movie called Half Human about yeti - like creature. I go to school next day and say, What this about yeti? Talking about ape - like creatures that are said to live in Himalayas. Teachers give me answers: They dont exist. Get back to your studies. And leave me alone. So he began his own studies, chasing down leads and rumors, and was soon corresponding with 400 people around world, asking questions about all strange animals that had been written off as myths. By 21, he had published his first article in field. In 1975, he published first of 40 books, including Cryptozoology to Z, which came out in 1999 and is credited with popularizing field for masses. He eventually settled in Maine, and in 2003, having grown tired of having house full of artifacts, he opened world's first and only Museum dedicated to Cryptozoology. Museum, Which Is Now In Its Third And Largest Location On Thompsons Point, Where It Sits Between Distillery And Burrito Joint, Has Giant Wooden Bigfoot Marking Its Entrance.

International Cryptozoology Museum

There are many monsters in world, but only one attraction that embraces them all. International Cryptozoology Museum Began As Personal Collection Of Loren Coleman, Opened As Museum In 2003, And Is Already In Its Fourth Location - Because Collection, Like All Good Monsters, Keeps Growing In Size And Popularity. Cavalcade of cryptids: Pendek, Dover Demon, Tatzelwurm. Colossus Squid in background. I think it would be little Museum, Loren say. People from Portland and Maine would drop by. Instead, museum has attracted visitors from across globe, which Loren attributes to its focus on animals and mysteries, areas of curiosity that humans can't seem to completely satisfy. Cryptozoology is study of unknown or hidden creatures, from celebrity beasts like Bigfoot and Nessie, to less - familiar horrors such as Jersey Devil and Skunk Ape, and even some animals that don't seem especially weird, like pygmy grizzly bears and oversized cats that pop up where they shouldn t. Loren, known authority on subject, has been collecting cryptid evidence since he was teenager in early 1960s. He said he was motivated to open museum when fellow researcher unexpectedly die, and his family promptly threw away all of his artifacts and specimens. I was aghast, Loren say. It was like, Okay, 'm not competing with other museums. I 'm competing with dump. Crookston Bigfoot is 8. 5 feet tall, formerly stood outside roast beef restaurant in Minnesota. Mongolian Death Worm Incubated On Camels, Can Grow Up To Five Feet Long, And Spits Poison. Much has been saved since then, and all of it seems to be packed Loren's Museum, which now includes over 10 000 exhibits. There are curio cabinets filled with hundreds of footprint casts, hair samples from mysterious hominids, monster toys - Loren calls them today's native art - and framed letter from actor Jimmy Stewart, recalling how he once hidden mummified Yeti hand in his underwear and smuggled it from Nepal to London. There are lifelike models of bizarre creatures such as Dover Demon, Mongolian Death Worm, and sea monster found inside sperm whale in 1937. There's also poignant tribute to Bandit, German Shepherd who chased after Mothman on November 15 1966, and was never seen again. Coleman's Corner, area of Museum designed by its staff, features Loren's many honorary awards - which increase in frequency, he say, closer you get to dying - and Museum's reference display of animal scat or, as staff affectionately call it, more of Loren's crap. Its most memorable artifact is ponderous pile of Bigfoot poop 19 inches across, which Loren says is especially popular with children. Life - size FeeJee Mermaid was made for PT Barnum biopic. Many of exhibits have stories nearly as exotic as creatures they represent.
