The Grand Monster Re-opening of the International Cryptozoology Museum

 

The Grand Monster Re-opening of the International Cryptozoology Museum™ will be from Noon to 6:00 PM on Sunday, October 30, 2011, at our new location, 11 Avon Street, Portland, Maine. Come celebrate Halloween early at the “World’s First and Only Cryptozoology Museum”™! All admissions are $2.00 for this one-time event.

 

The new, expanded, enlarged location will be opening through the side entrance at 11 Avon Street, Portland, Maine. This is just around the corner from our present Congress Street location, but we will be using “11 Avon Street, Portland, Maine” for GPS purposes. The museum will be closed for one week before the reopening for the massive move and re-curating of the 3000+ artifacts, including the full-sized art sculptures of the Crookston Bigfoot, Freaky Links’ pterodactyl, P.T.
