Meeting the owner and hearing his own story of seeing a Bigfoot when he was a child. The displays were cool - footprints, maps of sightings, etc. It was a FUN experience.
Worth the stop if you are in the area. There is no fee, but you can donate if you would like.

The museum is well worth a visit and is free, with donations accepted. It is small and takes about an hour to go through. Make sure you see the diorama in back, the photos and foot print castings. The owner was very interesting to talk with and siteings have been noted locally.

I wouldn't come all the way out to California just to see this, but if your near Felton, it's pretty cool. People are very friendly. Lots of things to look at inside, and the stories are better.

This little museum and it’s curator Mike, took me back to my childhood when all things mysterious where possible. This is a quaint little shop that has,unfortunately, suffered a road closure and kids (and parents) who are more interested in their cell-phones than talking to a real person about his and others’ sightings of the mysterious Big Foot. Well worth a few minutes of your time. Entrance is free, but be to Stop by and drop a few dollars in the donation box before this little piece of nostalgia is extinct.

This is a small compact museum with tons of Big Foot information. Free with a dontaion box. The guy behind the counter is totally into Big Foot and knows everything about the creature. He has screams of big foot on audio tape. Local sightings in the area. A fun place to stop.

Our younger boys wanted to stop and check this place out. We figured this would be a good place to let them get out and stretch their legs while on our way from San Francisco to Santa Cruz.

There is no charge for this road-side attraction, but they do ask for a small donation of $2 if you can. We had no problem with that.

This is just a small area with a decent collection of Bigfoot stuff and a super friendly owner who shared his thoughts and passions on this subject. Don't go in expecting a lot and have an open mind, you might be pleasantly surprised with this interesting little stop. You can probably figure a few minutes to an hour max at this place.

We went camping at Big Sur and drove here because we love anything paranormal. This place was awesome!! If you love Bigfoot or are just curious you must go! Very interesting site for anyone interested in this subject. The owner was very nice and had lots of information. Cool shirts and other Bigfoot/Sasquatch stuff to buy as well. We will definitely be coming back. That museum made me want to move there.

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 detour and came to the museum. It was as I expected. A tiny, dusty collection of Bigfoot information and memorabilia, including footprint castings, maps of spottings and encounters, and a small exhibit on the Patterson film. This is not a go-to destination unless you are into Bigfoot, cryptozoology, or kitsch. It is a "roadside america" style attraction that will only take a few minutes to look over if you only have a passing interest. The best part is the curator Mike, who has turned his passion of Bigfoot into this small museum. He has lots of stories, is very bright and engaging, and I could've chatted all day with him.

My 6year old is fascinated with Bigfoot so we had to stop here on our trip to Santa Cruz. The man who runs this was great and offered up plenty of info for my son who was too shy to ask. My son informed me that this was the “best day ever”. Definitely a good stop and a great guy running it.
