Fact meets fiction and then rubs noses with history, Native American lore and modern science as the story of Bigfoot will play out in displays at the upcoming exhibit Giants in the Mountains: The Search for Sasquatch at the Washington State History Museum.

This exploration of the Sasquatch story here in the Pacific Northwest focuses on why the geography and heritage found in this area of the globe feeds into the Bigfoot legend. The exhibit studies all aspects of the legend and draws no conclusions.

It opens Saturday, Jan. 23 at 10 a.m. A special "sneak peek" at the exhibit will happen during Third Thursday ArtWalk. Beginning at 6:30 p.m., co-curators Gwen Perkins and Susan Rohrer will lead a tour through the hairy show.

[Washington State History Museum, Thursday, Jan. 21, 6:30 p.m., free, 1911 Pacific Ave., Tacoma, 1.888.238.4373]

This sounds like a wonderful exhibit! AND it's free! If anyone does attend, I'd like a re-cap of the experience!
