We had the opportunity to speak with the museums archivist who shared his story of seeing big foot at the age of 4. After our visit there were varied levels of belief about big foot. An interesting diversion when in Felton.

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!
