Wow! I could spend all day!

The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is that it's not the Louvre or the Prado. Every mythological... read more

Disappointing visit. I am a believer in Sasquatch. I was expecting the "museum" to be much more scientific but it was more of a collection of bad artwork and kitschy souvenirs. I paid 28.00 for an adult and a teenager. Not worth it. 5 dollar...More

The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is that it's not the Louvre or the Prado. Every mythological beast... maybe monster... fantastic creature... is here. Real video of a Yeti? Check. Jackalope skeleton? Check. Chupacabra? Check. When you get back from Portland, it'll be...More

I am sorry but I was expecting so much more from this museum. It takes about 10 minutes to go through and most of the exhibits were stuffed animals you can buy in Walmart. I felt that for $10 each my family was completely ripped...More

Really small. Claims to have 10,000 exhibits, but it's only two really small corridors. Up to you whether it's worth the $10/pp to get in. No military discount.

They have everything here, from a giant furry big foot, the loch ness monster, moth man and even jackolopes. The only problem is that a lot of what's in the museum is toys. They had a dragon shaped beanie baby behind some glass. It's an...More

Totally not worth the 30$ it cost to get in. Really small place and it takes 30 to 45 min to go through.

If you are fascinated by such legendary beasts as the Loch Ness Monster, yetis, mermaids, jackalopes, or Big Foot, this is probably the place for you. The gentleman who created this collection on the Thompson Point fringe of Portland, certainly loves this sort of thing...More

Fun spot! Even spending time reading all the details in the exhibit - pretty quick tour. A half hour does the trick.

Loved it. This place was one of my must-dos in Portland. It leaves you thinking. It's like a museum. And your weird uncle's basement. And a hoarder cave. And a sideshow. All in the best way. Talk to whoever is behind the counter. We received...More

I don't know why this place isn't rated higher up in things to do in Portland. I think it's one of the best things in the city. We went through pretty quickly (about 30-45 minutes) but everything we saw was so interesting and weird. We...More
