This is as weird as it gets in Maine as far as museums go, so we of course love it. The International Cryptozoology Museum at Thompson’s Point in Portland will make you a believer in things like Bigfoot and the Jersey Devil. Various monsters and oddities along with rare pieces of evidence proving their existence are on display including a 5.5-foot-long, life-size model of a primitive fish called a coelacanth. Did we mention it has Yeti hair samples dating back to 1959? Yep, that and a whole lot more.
