It's a tiny museum, but a fun and unique thing to explore, especially on a rainy sunday :)

I think if its a slow day the attendant should give a tour with facts bc she was very knowledgeable but just felt weird asking her questions.

Awesome spot. I'll most likely be going back when they receive the Minnesota Ice Man exhibit from Austin, TX.

From Our Editors

The logo for the International Cryptozoology Museum is a coelacanth, one of the science's great success stories. Believed to have gone extinct 65 million years ago, a specimen of the armored fish was caught off the coast of South Africa in 1938 and identified by museum curator Marjorie Courtenay-Latimer despite its false mustache. In the optimistic spirit of that amazing discovery, the International Cryptozoology Museum displays exhibits profiling such mysterious creatures as Sasquatch, the Loch Ness Monster, and the Jersey Devil, along with lesser known beasties such as the Dover Demon, the Montauk Monster, and the Fiji Mermaid.
