  • 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 deto...  read 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, fri...  read 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. G...  read more »
  • Very impressive, the amount of memorabilia, videos and history. It is fun, educational and entertaining. Fun products for sale. friendly knowledgeable staff, great family fun.
  • I wonder if the place I saw was perhaps ransacked before I got there. The reviews do not match up to what was presented. Two small rooms fit into a portacabin whose walls were plastered in newspaper clippings, photos and retelling of any event involving BigFoot...some involving monkeys and apes and have nothing to do with bigfoot. Some of the cabinets were empty where items had been stolen but not replaced. Nothing took its space except for dust and cobwebs. Very disappointing, nothing unique about this place, nothing to note, nothing worth coming for.
  • Good historical data, sweet map, and even personally collected evidence from museum curator. Great guy, cool stories.
  • I'm now a believer. Sure it's small but perfectly proportioned. A wealth of information and passion on Bigfoot. Go and don't forget to donate!
  • This humble "museum" was truly a highlight of my trip to California considering that I'm very interested in the mystery of Bigfoot. I first discovered this place from watching an episode of 'Finding Bigfoot' on Animal Planet (spoiler alert: they don't find Bigfoot!). Anyway, I already knew that we were planning a trip to San Francisco and Monterey and so after seeing the museum on TV I knew that we now had to go to Santa Cruz too. Boy was I happy that I went. I really liked look at the old Bigfoot memorabilia that this guy has collected over the years and I liked talking to the guy who worked there. It was pretty funny because when I asked him if he personally had ever seen Bigfoot he said yes but then when I asked to share his experience with me he wouldn't. I liked the souvenirs they were selling. I bought two pins a t-shirt, and a 11" by 17" poster of the history of Bigfoot. I was very interested about what the guy was telling me about Bigfoot and how people in other countries accept the fact that we're living along side an ape-like man. I honestly could have stayed longer to look at everything and talk to the guy more. Two things I recommend you look at while there is the casts of Bigfoot footprints (they're very cool) and ask to see a model of the supposed Bigfoot tooth that was found. Also, I encourage you to donate some money because this place does not charge admission. This is definitely a place that I would return to.
