The vision of Loren Coleman comes alive…

The mission of the museum is to share items cryptozoologically collected, since 1960, by Loren Coleman and gathered from other donators to his collection.

Our director, cryptozoologist Loren Coleman, author of over 30 books, is someone you’ve seen in Bigfoot and cryptozoology documentaries and television programs, since 1969. This museum is his legacy, and was founded in 2003. For more on the history of the Museum, click here.
