Cryptozoologist and Cosimo author Loren Coleman is the founder and director of the International Cryptozoology Museum, one of the world’s only cryptozoology museums.
The ICM offers guests a wide range of exhibitions from rare, one-of-a-kind scientific specimens to popular cultural homages to sightings, encounters, art, and research. The museum's mission is not only to educate, but to entertain as well! A gift shop with unique souvenirs (and maybe even a few books or two!), conferences and trips, as well as many talks and speeches are also available throughout the year.
The museum is open every day but Tuesdays, and is located at 4 Thompson’s Point Road, in Portland, Maine.
