The Crossroads of America Bigfoot Museum in Nebraska is perhaps the most quaint of all Bigfoot attractions.
Located on 42nd street in the city of Hastings, the museum is owned and run by Harriett McFeely - a 74-year-old who first became fascinated by the possibility of Bigfoot's existence after seeing photographs of the footprint discovered by Edmund Hillary on Mt. Everest in 1953.
Having adopted the moniker "The Bigfoot Lady", McFreely had originally wanted to become an anthropologist however things unfortunately did not pan out.
It wasn't until relatively recently that she was finally able to find her true calling.
"When this came along I was more surprised than anybody," she said. "Because I never thought I'd be working in my own museum. God has sent me exactly the people that I need when I need them because I could've never ever planned this."
Featuring photographs, footprint plaster casts, audio recordings and even a life-size model Bigfoot, the museum is open from 10am-4:30pm from Tuesday to Saturday and from 1am-4:30pm on Sundays.
