Yankee magazine, well known in New England, gives out annual “Best of New England” Editor's Choice Awards this time every year. Honored as "Best Quirky Museum" is the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, ME. Congratulations to founder Loren Coleman.
COMMENT: The ICM is the ONLY cause I regularly beseech readers of this blog to support, whether that support is monetary or in the form of exhibits or archived materials. Whether you think cryptozoology is scientifically important, a silly nuisance, or something in between does not actually matter here. The ICM houses tens of thousands of items, from full-size animal models to newspaper clippings, making up a one-of-a-kind collection about humanity's fascination with animal mysteries.
