The Grand Monster Reopening of the International Cryptozoology Museum™ will be from Noon to 6:00 PM on Sunday, October 30, 2011. Come celebrate Halloween early at the “World’s First and Only Cryptozoology Museum”™!
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. Barnum’s FeeJee Mermaid, the Naden Harbor Caddy, and other cryptid replicas, evidence, and more.
The reduced one-time admission for this Grand Reopening Event will be $2 cash, no change, per person. Greater donations will be appreciated to help with our move and re-design. The bookstore/gift shop will be open for this event.
Foreshadowing and remembering…October 2009…during our move downtown…
