Over the years, Loren Coleman has amassed an unrivaled collection of replicas and artifacts relating to world's famous and lesser-known cryptids, ranging from the fanciful (P.T. Barnum's Feejee Mermaid) to the factual (like the coelacanth fish, long thought to be extinct but discovered alive in 1938). For Obscura Day, Coleman has generously agreed to lead a band of curious souls on a tour of his newly opened International Cryptozoology Musuem.
In observance of Obscura Day, on Saturday, March 20 Coleman has generously agreed to lead a small band of curious souls on a tour of his collection on Saturday, March 20. $5.00 admission at the door.
