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...More

Really, Bigfoot?! Just some old pictures, fake photos, nothing later than 1950's, old toys and books with Bigfoot on them. Free. Boring. Waste of time. Go to the beach or Redwoods instead.

Santa Cruz is known for being weird wacky and wonderful. so, naturally there's a bigfoot museum here in the foothills of the mountains. Definitely , stop in, meet the folks and get involved! You'll be glad you did!

Stopped by here to see what it was all about. Basically a museum focused on the history of Big Foot with a gift shop and various artifacts intending to prove Bigfoot's existence. It's free so that is cool. Takes about 15 minutes to walk through...More
