Monolithic head statues of Easter island (Photo by Artemio Urbina and placed in the public domain) If you have followed world mysteries you have undoubtedly come across the amazing head statues on Easter Island. These gigantic stone carvings depict proud heads, rising up out of the ground. If you’ve not followed them for a while you may have missed the activity over three last few years as archeologists have confirmed that these statues have full bodies and have been working
While browsing strange news I came across this item from 2007: Google Maps forces Navy to redesign swastika building. It tells the bizarre tale about the U.S. Navy, somehow, inadvertently put up this Navy Seal training building in the shape of a Swastika in 1967. A snapshot of the building from Google Maps is shown here from 2006. Google Map Image, captured May 8, 2006 by Flickr user Si1very What a mess! How could this be? How could they accidentally put up a building in the
People around the world are reporting a strange trumpeting sound that seems to come from the sky. It’s a massive droning unlike any aircraft we’ve ever heard before. Listen to the sounds in this video from Texas. Another video from Germany is very similar, though less distinct. There is speculation that we are hearing the mysterious HAARP project, a radio-wave device that some claim is used for weather control. Officials deny that HAARP has any affect on the weather, though t
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

Screen shot of the moment the supposed Skunk Ape stands upright. Could this be the best video yet of the elusive Skunk Ape, the south’s version of Bigfoot? Here’s the description accompanying the video, which was uploaded by YouTube user Josh Highcliff on October 28, 2013: Here is exactly what I seen, I’m not sure what it is but can someone please tell me? Is there a person who can do video analyses or something? I got scared and ran away, i wish i stayed to keep taking the
David “Crusty” Herron snapped this photo of what he dubbed “Lost Nessie” from a distance of about 600 feet from shore. Last Friday, the scene from Magnetic Island off the northern coast of Australia must have looked like something straight out of The Lost World. Beachgoers were treated to the sight of what appeared to be a long-necked sea going creature straight out of our prehistoric past. The strange looking object moving in the water was extraordinary enough to get the at
Dr. Melba Ketchum’s announcement of Zoobank accepting her proposed name for the Bigfoot species. Dr. Melba Ketchum announced today that Zoobank has officially granted the creatures popularly known as “Bigfoot” the latin name: Homo sapiens cognatus. http://zoobank.org/NomenclaturalActs/40E2FA1F-10A1-4D42-8B02-A007347F1B43 (And the race to the finish line starts heating up!) #Yeti #Bigfoot #Zoobank #mystery #Cryptozoology #Cryptid #science #Homosapienscognatus #weirdnews #museu
Former heavyweight boxing champion-turned-Bigfoot hunter Nikolai Valuev joins host Mark Evans as they investigate the Almasty. For those of you who have not had the chance to watch the first episode of the excellent show Bigfoot Files, you can watch it in its entirety here: The show is well-worth watching, and is an example of the type of programming cryptozoology needs more of. Bigfoot Files takes a scientific approach to the search for answers to the mystery of Bigfoot, fol
Abominable Snowmen book and my mummified “Yeti” finger. I was tipped off to this news several months ago (and again a few days ago) that Oxford University geneticist Dr. Bryan Sykes would be announcing some “unexpected results” concerning his DNA study of supposed Yeti hair samples. Well, now those results are being officially announced to the world, and I would think it’s safe to say they are not what anybody had expected, but no less amazing in my opinion. For centuries, ta
This morning a group of Sasquatch researchers have announced their findings after a five year study into the phenomenon of Bigfoot. New photos and videos filled with never before seen images were released Tuesday by a group known as the Sasquatch Genome Project. They were in Dallas Tuesday to unveil its findings.
Dr. Melba Ketchum, a genetics scientist led the project. “We want people to understand this is a serious study,” said Ketchum.
The five-year study costs more than $5
This is a photo of the creepy clown spooking residents of Northampton. “He doesn’t juggle. He doesn’t twist balloons into animal shapes. He just stares.” Those were the details reported by the Northampton Herald and Post today, and may be part of the reason locals are feeling a bit unnerved by a mysterious stranger dressed in full clown makeup who began standing outside their homes in a town north of London. Appropriately enough, the clown first appeared on Friday the 13th. H
The ghostly image of a young woman can be seen in the door window. Here’s an interesting and creepy photo. You can see through the door window what appears to be a young woman peering in. Supposedly taken by the woman’s husband, they claimed there was no one else in the room at the time. So if it isn’t a reflection, what could it be? A New Hampshire man noticed an unexpected guest in one of his friend’s Facebook photos recently. He posted the odd image of his friend and her
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
As you can read in our previous post, Frank Hansen, the man who originally exhibited the Minnesota Iceman in the 1960s and 70s, revealed in a 1970 article in Saga Magazine that he himself was the one who shot the creature while hunting in the deep woods of Minnesota. Keep that in mind as you read this next story (click on the link below), which details some interviews with Frank Hansen in his final years. If the following account is true, why would Hansen in his later years
I received many requests from various individuals and groups for the entire backstory of the Minnesota Iceman. If you want to learn its fascinating history, all I can tell you there is a lot of information out there on the subject, so I encourage you to do your own research. For those of you who have neither the time, patience or inclination to research the subject on your own, I generously provide to you one piece of the puzzle here for your perusal. Below you can read an en
The Museum of the Weird in Austin, Texas will be making a major announcement of historic significance on Tuesday, June 25, 2013. We cannot divulge any more information at this time, but we highly recommend friending us on Facebook (click the link in the upper right corner). Stay tuned… #museumoftheweird #mystery #TopSecret
Is this a close up of a Sasquatch face? This image and a few others have been recently leaked on the internet. It is speculated that they show the face of a Bigfoot called “Matilda” by the researchers who have been studying the creature. What do you think? Is it real? Or is it just another hoax? That face sure does look familiar… #weird #Yeti #Bigfoot #mystery #TopSecret #Cryptozoology #Cryptid #weirdnews #museumoftheweird #Sasquatch
