North American Bigfoot Center opens in Boring

09/24/2019 | Boring, Heritage, Mt Hood Territory, Mt. Hood, Road Trip

The North American Bigfoot Center launched a soft opening in (not at all) Boring at the beginning of August. Leading Bigfoot researcher Cliff Barackman of Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot and his wife are the brains behind the museum. Their goal is to present the evidence so visitors can make their own conclusions…and have fun!

Cliff has been researching Bigfoot for more than 25 years and has become one of the go-to experts in the field. One major reason for opening the center in Mt. Hood Territory is that this area has the most reported Bigfoot sightings of any county in Oregon.

Currently at the North American Bigfoot Center, there’s an information center with evidence that visitors can touch and feel. This exhibit includes footprint and handprint casts, Native American artifacts and even a life-sized Bigfoot named Murphy. Murphy was crafted by an animatronics studio and captures all of the creature’s supposed physical characteristics.

There’s also a gift shop with loads of Bigfoot merchandise. In the next few months, the museum will expand to include multiple exhibits that flow chronologically through different areas. One section will even be transformed into a forest where guests will hear the sounds of Bigfoot and other wildlife native to their habitats.

Hear more about the North American Bigfoot Center and Cliff on the Mt. Hood Territory podcast. And stop by the Center to evaluate the evidence and stories for yourself.
