The International Cryptozoology Museum at Thompson’s Point

Cryptozoology is the study of hidden or unknown animals. These are usually larger zoological species that, to date, remain unverified by science, such as Yetis, Bigfoot, Lake Monsters, and Sea Serpents, as well as hundreds of other yet-to-be-found animals (cryptids) worldwide, but which compelling ethnoknown evidence has been collected for their possible existence. It also encompasses the study of animals of recent discovery, such as the coelacanth, okapi, megamouth shark, giant panda, and mountain gorilla.

In 2014, the International Cryptozoology Museum was chosen by Time Magazine as one of the “Ten Weirdest Museums in the World.” In 2015, the Indian Times selected us as their #1 choice of “The Most Unusual Museums in the World You Will Want to Visit.” In 2016, we are featured in Outside Magazine, Mysteries at the Museum (x2), The Bangor Daily News, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Rolling Stone Magazine, CNN, The Bollard, and elsewhere.
