Halloween Weekend 2016
We bring the Richard Saja-curated art show, “Monsters in America” to the Museum for two months. See it for $5 for each person during the opening weekend.
Heads up #Maine, the Monsters are coming! That’s right, Monsters In America – the gallery show wondrously curated by Richard Saja & inspired by the #MonsterMap – is headed down coast to the new home of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland. This place is a truly magical institution, and we are scary psyched for this to be happening at the grand opening of its new location – Friday 10/28! #Cryptozoology
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
