So I didn’t hear about this place until a few days ago and since I was going that direction going to my neurologist, I figured I would take a slight detour and visit the museum.
I was not disappointed.
I went to the The International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine a few years back and I think Expedition Bigfoot if not physically bigger, certainly had more information and better exhibits. (And the other museum covered more than Bigfoot, you would have thought they would have had more stuff!)
I think there was barely a space that was not covered with SOMETHING. They even had a room they claim was a real research lab. Is it? Maybe. My labs I am used to are normally a little bigger, but it could probably do the job. They also have a small movie theater which completely slayed me with the old fashion intermission advertisements. They have newspapers, bigfoot casts, maps (why there were two sightings in Augusta, I will never know), recordings of a hand full of stories (and yes some of those calls did sound like a primate), and a small Tibetan exhibit as the Yeti is probably a close cousin of Bigfoot.
While I know one of the more famous videos did turn out to be a fake, I know most of the things on there are still definitely mysteries. I am neither a believer or non-believer, but I am definitely open to the possibility of some type of Gigantopithecus somehow hiding.
My only question is why was this not open when I was living in Blairsville for 9 months and was bored out of my mind? Especially since I used to work as a primatology intern and have a BS in Anthropology and Human Biology? Why did nobody tell me I could have gone to look for Bigfoot? That would have killed my boredom.
Would you go looking for Bigfoot?
