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

a tiny place, maybe 200 square feet, but lots of interesting newspaper clippings and trivia; fun for kids

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

Like a lobster trap - you don't know if you want to go in but there's that nagging question in the back of your mind - is there something good in there? There isn't. But eh curator is a talkative, friendly guy who will engage...More

So here is the thing. When you see it from the out side it looks small and a bit uncared for and it is small and a bit uncared for! They ask for a $2 donation. But it's not required. It's a passion. Get out,...More

I wanted to visit this place for years but never got around doing it until today. The museum is rather small; consisting of two rooms. The place does not charge admission but ask for a two dollar donation or five bucks for a guided tour....More
