Wednesday, September 7, 2011, appeared to be international day, indeed, at the International Cryptozoology Museum.
Tatzelwurm of the Alps.
David Carkhuff quoted me in July 2010, in the Portland Daily Sun as noting,
“We just had the Italians here, we just had Irish TV, Animal Planet channel came by. Animal Planet channel came two weeks ago actually to do eight episodes of next season’s Lost Tapes. Italian TV was here because they have a six-year series called Voyager, and they were coming up Route 1, and they picked out the museum to be their focus for Route 1. And then the Irish TV did a whole program just about the museum for their Irish TV, and they did it in Gaelic.”
Wednesday was typical of what we often see at the museum. Four Italians who had journeyed to Portland only to see the museum were drawn here due to the museum’s appearance on the Italian television program Voyager.
Concurrently with those Italian folks, three people who were driving up the coast of Maine from London, England, picked out the museum to visit over other attractions.
The museum has many items of international interest, including exhibits filled with worldwide examples of cryptids, in addition to physical evidence such as 1959 Yeti fecal samples from Nepal, Orang Pendek hairs from Sumatra, Yowie cast from Australia, and more. Cryptozoology is global in its appeal.
