Explore the Unknown


Cryptozoology is the study of hidden or unknown animals, and you have discovered the world’s only cryptozoology museum.

Visit our CryptoStore to obtain a rare souvenir.

We have a wide range of exhibitions from rare, one-of-a-kind scientific, zoological specimens to popular cultural homages to the relevant anthropological and psychological acknowledgements of the sightings and folk traditions to be found within hominology and cryptozoology. As part of our scientific and education mission, we preserve native art and contemporary souvenirs.

Your admissions, donations and gift store purchases keep us open.

Our Exhibits


Founded in 2003, The International Cryptozoology Museum has a collection of thousands of items for you to see. We appeal to all ages and are a family-friendly museum. In 2016, we relocated from downtown Portland, Maine, to Thompson’s Point. Our two-story museum is curated with a wide variety of cryptozoological specimens, oddities, artifacts, and novelty items surrounding the study of unknown creatures. Continuing in 2021 is our Sasquatch Revealed Exhibit.
