Bigfoot Discovery Museum


Michael Rugg and Paula Yarr began the Bigfoot Discovery Museum in Felton, California. They call their project the BDP. They obtain film subjects such as the famous Blurry Bigfoot film and other "specimens" that are supposedly from the Pacific Coast. Their museum offers a dialogue discussing Bigfoot and Sasquatch myths and the supposed discoveries of such things. Of course, western Science does not believe in Bigfoot, though there is a lot of mythology on the concept of there being a sasquatch like creature.

The museum was opened in 2004 at the base of the Santa Cruz Mountains. The purpose is to educate individuals on the probability that Bigfoot could exist, as well as the best guess of where to find their habitats in the world. Visitors will see skulls, footprint casts, maps, videos, and pop culture relating to these supposed creatures. There is even a 9 foot tall folk art sculpture of Bigfoot and a diorama at the museum.

Bigfoot Discovery Museum is open Wednesday through Sunday 12pm to 6pm. It is located at 5497 Highway 9 in Felton. The cost of the museum is free, though they accept donations. There is also a membership one can obtain.
