You might think that UFO stories about aliens are pretty new, but there’s one in Texas that dates back to 1897. A tiny town called Aurora, just a little north of Ft. Worth (215 miles from the Museum of the Weird), has a mysterious legend about an alien encounter. Grave site of alleged alien from the crash in 1897 I’m thinking field trip! It’s about a 3.5 hour drive from the Museum. We head out, pay our respects. Maybe we sneak into Ft. Worth for some food and maybe a Stockyar
Is it possible that SETI has finally found what it’s been looking for — an extraterrestrial message from deep space? Apparently for some time now, scientists have been receiving these unusual radio signals, and are at a loss for what could explain them. From the Huffington Post: What are those things?
For the past eight years, astronomers have been scratching their heads over a series of strange radio signals emanating from somewhere in the cosmos. And now, the mystery has d
Jesse Marcel Jr., one of the last witnesses to the Roswell debris (inset of his father) It is a shame that 66 years after the Roswell crash we STILL don’t know the truth… and with one of the last credible witnesses having passed away now, I fear we never will. Marcel Jr. was one of the last surviving witnesses to the debris recovered during the Roswell incident.
Dr Jesse Marcel was the son of Major Jesse Marcel whose involvement in the recovery of debris from the Roswell UFO
Medjimurje Mayor Ivan Stefic holding the “alien head.” I have no idea what this thing is that the mayor is holding, but I wouldn’t mind having it on display in the Museum of the Weird! Mayor Stefic, if you’re reading this… call me! A baffled mayor has asked scientists to examine the remains of what be believes to be the head of an alien dug up by workers in a graveyard in Croatia.
The twisted, soft-bodied remains – which seems to have a beak-like mouth in the centre – were u
Here’s an interesting bit of trivia. Today, July 8th, was the very day 66 years ago that the legendary UFO crash supposedly took place in Roswell, New Mexico. I don’t know if it’s a cosmic coincidence or another incredible bit of providence on my part, but I’ve just been contacted by a man who claims to have some actual debris from another UFO that crashed somewhere here in Texas over a hundred years ago! He contacted me after he learned about the Museum of the Weird from t
According to reports, the creature, which was to undergo a full forensic investigation by Namibian authorities after its capture, was spotted by locals as they were escorting a hunting party through the jungle. The “alien” was foraging for food, but when spotted, turned and fled. The hunting party and their escorts took chase and followed the creature back to its lair where it turned on them and attacked in an attempt to defend itself. The creature was shot and killed, but no
Did a plane carrying a famed fashion designer vanish into thin air over these islands? Last month, a plane carrying famous fashion designer Vittorio Missoni mysteriously disappeared in mid-flight. An exhaustive search found no wreckage or debris, and to this day it remains an unsolved mystery.

Photo of the supposed UFO caught by a security camera and detailed in a January 5, 2013 MUFON report. Could the above photo be that of an actual landed alien spacecraft? So claims a witness in Texas who filed a report with MUFON on January 5, 2013. In the report the person alleges his father works for an oil company in Cotulla, Texas, and goes on to explain: “…They had noticed that some people were taking the crude oil in the night… they started putting cameras up around the
Many people believed the end of the world would come on December 21, 2012, the date that marked the end of the Mayan calendar. That date has come and gone, and I can’t help but wonder what all the die-hard Mayan Apocalypse believers are thinking now. There were two general ways of thinking about how this end would come: it would either be a horrific doomsday scenario that would be the end of all life as we know it, or it would mark the beginning of a new age of human enlighte
