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... More

We stopped at this after a trip to Henry Cowells state park, it's about 1 minute down the road. It's very small but crammed full of Bigfoot research which is very interesting to read and see if you approach it with an open mind. The owner was very friendly and very interesting to talk to with lots of different stories,... More

What's not to like here? Admission is free although they take donations. i listened to a tape of a possible bigfoot howling in the woods of Lompico. To me it sounded like a drunk person howling, but who am i to say?

We have been by this place to many times to count over the years and finally stopped to take a look. Lot's of interesting items, speculation, etc. Worth a look just for the fun of it, and you might learn a thing or two.

Well worth stopping at if you are in the area. Curator Rugg is a true believer. He has some great stories. There is some great stuff in the gift shop.

While I'm an avid Bigfoot fan, I am easily turned off by those who exploit it, this is NOT the case. Mike's Bigfoot Discovery Museum is GREAT! It looks at Bigfoot from all sorts of angles. Serious reports to National Enquirer stories. Mike is a very interesting, energetic curator who has tons of Bigfoot factoids. I visited it when I... More

Visited the Bigfoot Museum in Felton, Ca. Run by an avid Bigfoot researcher whose passion and belief in this creature is evident throughout this small, but interesting collection of artifacts, reports of sitings in the area and literature about the Bigfoot. He was interesting, friendly and was clearly enthusiastic when telling story of his personal experience as a child seeing... More
