I've always been fascinated with the idea of Bigfoot, or the possibility that there are creatures out there we haven't officially discovered yet. So, while visiting family nearby, we made a small detour and came to the museum. It was as I expected. A tiny, dusty collection of Bigfoot information and memorabilia, including footprint castings, maps of spottings and encounters,... More

Like a lobster trap - you don't know if you want to go in but there's that nagging question in the back of your mind - is there something good in there? There isn't. But eh curator is a talkative, friendly guy who will engage you in interesting banter for a while. This is one of those roadside attractions that... More

So here is the thing. When you see it from the out side it looks small and a bit uncared for and it is small and a bit uncared for! They ask for a $2 donation. But it's not required. It's a passion. Get out, explore and maybe you will be intrigued with someone's experiences. I give it a 5... More

The place does not charge admission but ask for a two dollar donation or five bucks for a guided tour. I went for the tour. I felt the tour was very informative as I kept... More

This is a dingy dank dilapidated place. Two tiny little rooms filled with limited Bigfoot paraphernalia. It was so dusty inside, we couldn't stay more than a couple minutes. Ick!

We were excited to see, but door was locked and no one would answer :( bummer Sign said open and the light was on, we waited quite a while, but no one ever answered the door.

Winding up Highway 9 just outside of Felton, this tiny treasure is a must see for Bigfoot believers and oddly interesting for even the most casual Sasquatch fans. There's a wealth of information packed into this little cabin and all kinds of Bigfoot-related items on display.

My son is into Big Foot. We enjoyed talking with the curator at great length. It is small and donation base. It is worth the visit! Very unique.
