The International Cryptozoology Museum In Maine Is Not For The Faint Of Heart

In Maine we have no shortage of strange, from stores shaped like blueberries to eerie stories of (reported) UFO abductions. BUT, one of the strangest things about Maine is the many reported sightings of mysterious animals. There have been sightings of giant half-man, half-animal beasts from almost every region in the state and whether they’re real or not has yet to be proven. Wherever you stand in the debate about whether these reports are bogus, at least we have one institution dedicated to doing the research: The International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
