Something Unusual This Way Comes:
The International Cryptozoology Museum Is Moving To Thompson’s Point
Portland, Maine… The owners of Thompson’s Point—a multi-use development on a spit of land overlooking Portland’s Fore River—announced today that “one of the most unusual places to visit in the world,” The International Cryptozoology Museum, will move to The Point in early 2016.
Founded in 2003 by Loren Coleman—a respected cryptozoologist, author, and former professor at several New England universities—the nonprofit museum is presently located [off] Congress Street [at 11 Avon Street] in downtown Portland. The move will give the museum more room for its exhibits but most importantly will provide needed space for a new reading room for curiosity seekers.
“We will soon receive a donation of more than 40,000 volumes of materials that will establish our own cryptozoology library,” said Coleman. “The move to The Point will give us the space we need for a reading room where visitors can come to do their own research and learn more about our field of study.”
“We admire the work Loren and his team have done over the years,” said Chris Thompson a partner in the company developing Thompson’s Point. “We look forward to having them join us at The Point and to being part of their business evolution.”
