Took the out of the way back from Santa Cruz to San Jose and took a few minutes to stop here. Seemed as though a lot of the cast were missing or sold. Interesting person that runs the place telling history and hunting expeditions 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

I've always been fascinated with the idea of Bigfoot, or the possibility that there are creatures out there we haven't officially discovered yet. So, while visiting family nearby, we made a small detour and came to the museum. It was as I expected. A tiny,...More
