“mystery primates around the world”

The main entrance to Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park can be seen looking north out our front window. We opened the doors to the public on the 4th of July, 2004 but we had our Grand Opening in June, 2006 due to a delay in getting approval from the Planning Department. Our collection includes exhibits of local history, tied in with local Bigfoot sightings, Popular Culture as it relates to the public view of Bigfoot, and actual evidence in the form of plaster foot and hand prints along with detailed exhibit on the Patterson-Gimlin Film.  We are privileged to have the permission and blessing of Roger Patterson’s widow, Patricia Patterson, to make the Patterson/Gimlin film footage available for viewing to visitors on a continuous loop here at the Museum.  There are exhibits inside the main building as well as in the rear, a nocturnal diorama featuring Bigfoot and an audio-video outside “cafe” area where you can see Bigfoot documentaries of your choosing.

Neat little shop with lots of local history about Bigfoot sightings. The dude behind the counter is more than willing to regale you with tales of Sasquatch sightings that go back as far as the 50s, which is worth the visit alone if you're into that kind of thing.

Fun road trip diversion, and a great place to snag some really fun memorabilia too.
