This museum is free and run by volunteers. There is a great range of exhibits both inside and out. The lady on duty was very helpful and told us about the town and the artefacts.

We wanted to believe! Unfortunately this tiny hodgepodge of a stop was not great. Shouldn't really be considered a museum. More of a road side attraction. The lady who ran the shop was lovely and we bought a tshirt to keep them in business, but we would have liked some more quality options in the shop. A really nice big... More

My real interest was to have photos of and with Big Foot. Good little museum with a sweet lady as cashier and guide. This museum and clean, tree-lined street town is inland from the Eureka, California area. Don't overlook the "footprint" cast next to the redwood-carved statute of Big Foot.

Fun little place. Bigfoot education at its finest. I enjoy a free museum and it's great that a tiny town wants to show off their culture.

Almost skipped this little museum because I was not so interested in Bigfoot lore. Glad we did not. Has a lot of the history of the local area. There is frequently an elderly gentleman filled with knowledge of the local area holding court at the museum. We were lucky to meet and get some interesting local lore from him. If... More

Well worth the visit. Closed during the off-season but a few calls and you can get the museum specially opened. Very friendly volunteer staff, great historical Bigfoot exhibit and Willow Creek general history. Very nice gift soft filled with Bigfoot/Sasquatch memorabilia and souvenirs. Overall great little museum.

Went out of our way to visit this fun museum in Willow Creek. Was not only filled with Bigfoot information, but also had interesting local history displays. Visitors (including my husband and me) were enthusiastically taking photos with the giant BigFoot outside the museum, reading the Bigfoot stories left by visitors (there are a couple of notebooks filled with witness...
