Ghost Tour from 2018


Consumer Alert!

Jonathan Reed's fake alien in 2001 in Seattle and Jaime Maussan's alien in 2023 unveiled in Mexico.

Consumer Alert

It has made national news, NPR, Associated Press and ABC news about Mexican researcher Jaime Maussan unveiling two alien bodies to the Mexican Congress.

But this isn't the first time Jaime Maussan has promoted an alien body.

The Northwest Museum of Legends and Lore in 2001 investigated a hoax that would later be promoted (and unfortunately still is) by UFO personality Jaime Maussan. 

Called the Jonathan Reed "Alien in the Freezer" hoax, this story created national attention on the Art Bell radio show until it was investigated that the "DNA expert"
cited by Reed to legitimize his story was actually a mini-mart employee in West Seattle.

The museum just recently updated and re-linked our longstanding museum page of this hoax to call out such exhibits on their lack of verification and as potential scams.
We believe both countries, the US and Mexico are seriously trying to identify aerial phenomenon to improve security. And with hoaxes and scams in the arena, we feel this does increase the reluctance of witnesses to report national security sightings.

Please post or forward this past investigation in an effort to create consumer awareness or for those who may have questions about Jaime Maussan's history with promoting hoaxers.

Reed's claims were first broadcast on Art Bell's national radio show making this one of the most
widely publicized stories and the Northwest's largest UFO hoax.

Seattle Bruce Lee Fan Club

The Northwest Museum of Legends and Lore home of the Seattle Bruce Lee Fan Club is proud to announce the formal
application to nominate Bruce Lee’s first formal martial arts studio for historic preservation was submitted on Sept. 30, 2022 to the
City of Seattle’s Landmark Preservation Board in City Hall

The Seattle  Bruce Lee Fan Club and the Seattle Jun Fan Gung Fu Academy present the nomination to the Landmark Preservation Board in Seattle City Hall.

Seattle Jun Fan Gung Fu Academy

Preserving Bruce Lee's first formal Studio

The Northwest Museum of Legends and Lore, a 501(c)3 non-profit and home of the Seattle Bruce Lee Fan Club is beginning efforts to preserve and purchase the building and studio of Bruce Lee’s first Jun Fan Gung Fu Institute in Seattle.

The first formal studio of Martial Artist Bruce Lee has long been recognized by students and historians at 4750 University Way in Seattle and is believed to be one of the last remaining structures where Bruce Lee not only taught his martial arts but where Bruce Lee also lived.

The studio has been listed as the “Jun Fan Gung Fu Institute” and Bruce Lee is considered to be the father of mixed martial arts.

The museum plans to nominate the site for historical preservation with the City of Seattle with the goal to restore the front to as close to the original 1963 martial arts studio with active martial arts classes to honor Bruce Lee’s family, students and legacy.

The museum’s efforts to preserve the studio for posterity so that others can be inspired by what is considered one of the world’s most famous Martial Artists and a global icon who fought for equality.

Maury Island UFO Incident Book

Now available, the first book from the Northwest Museum of Legend and  Lore



“When I met Charlette LeFevre and Philip Lipson in 2007, I found them to be enthusiastic researchers who were energetically pursuing and impartially sifting through the facts about the Maury Island incident.  This book is the result of their efforts.  It presents new evidence and new analysis, and every reader will find it intriguing and informative.”

     Larry Haapanen, Ph.D, the last UFO investigator for the Fourth Air Force.

Amazon Reader Review, March 17, 2014 - Charlette LeFevre and Philip Lipson have done a great investigative job into one of the most bizarre, enigmatic, and strange UFO cases around. I have been personally investigating this case for over 40 years now and was very surprised to find information and photographs in their book that I have never seen before. Whatever this classic 1947 case really represents; either a real UFO event, some kind of coverup using UFOs as a foil, or a downright hoax, ... do not pick up the investigation trail yourself without reading this book and adding it to your UFO research library!

Find out more about the Maury Island UFO Incident
Maury Island UFO Incident

The Maury Island UFO Incident is a bizarre mystery case spanning several months in the summer of 1947 in the Puget Sound area of Washington State and involved the Air Force’s first military plane crash. 

This book focuses on the crash site of the B-25 Bomber, a first ever interview with a local who was first on the scene and a newly discovered news photo of the crash site, believed to be the only photo available of the historical crash.  This book brings forth more photos and new information  than ever before on this mystery.

The mystery occurred two weeks before Roswell and involved three facets.  The first facet the story by Harold Dahl of UFOs seen over Maury Island, the second Kenneth Arnold’s sighting of UFOs over Mt. Rainier and the third, the tragic crash of a B-25 Bomber and the deaths of two military intelligence officers.  As the Air Force separated from the Army August 1st 1947 this was the first crash and fatalities of the Air Force.

Words from the Ghost Communication Box

Ghost communication box

The Ghost Communication Box is a voice chip programmed with the 71 phoenetics of the human voice activated by EMF fields. The chip, from was placed in this clock box for ease of operation. The museum has had the box for nine years and can say the words heard from the box appear to be random.

Words heard: Backwords chat, where builder's build, burial at here (cemetery?) he loved it here, employees, seasonal help, orange.

 Ghost Box: Calling on Knute Rockne to call winner of Superbowl 49, words heard: "Say Hawks", "third", "up air by 5 feet", "help you".

Regarding Ebola
, (developing word analysis...) we asked Edgar Cayce. Words: Ice, help you...

Regarding Malasian Flight 370, we asked famous pilot Kenneth Arnold, "What happened to the Maylasian Flight 370?
usual schedule, air, water, up help, news. I don't know, near fire, occupy gear, back up air, allied, glaring alarm usually invisible eyes dial

Mystery of Orbs Solved!

Mystery of solving hand warts solved!

The solution? Cover with
Clear nail polish!
Why does it work? It is believed the nail polish seals off air from the wart in much the same way that duct tape is said to work.
Clear nail polish is also less noticable than tape or the black skin that results from freezing warts.
Results are reported to be seen the next day.
