Interesting visit for all the family (we have slightly older kids and they enjoyed it too). Huge number of individual exhibits and well worth taking the time for a visit.

Great little museum with a lot to see. Very thought provoking and sets the record straight on the true nature of witchcraft. Good value for money and the kids loved it too. Would be good to have a proper little shop but this certainly is only a minor point.

Definitely worth a fiver. Lovely village anyway, and such well-researched, fascinating exhibits. Highly recommended if you're interested in history!

This is somewhere I have wanted to visit for a long time and it did not disappoint. Situated in a valley heading towards the sea its hard not to remember the floods which devastated the area 10 years ago. There are water level markers inside the museum which show you height to which the water rose. Its hard to believe... More

This was really interesting and a great place to visit. We spent a few hours on our trip as there is so much to see. Only thing I was slightly disappointed in was the fact there wasn't much to buy. I would of liked to see a bigger shop. It was cramped when it was busy but with a little... More

Whilst spending an afternoon in Boscastle we popped into this museum. It was an enjoyable hour or so, witchcraft not really being something I'm bothered about but some interesting exhibits nonetheless.

This place is packed with things to see. It really is great place to visit if this kind of thing interests you. I really don't know how they got so much to see, in what seems like such a small place. This museum is great because it isn't just a place to keep reading things. you get to see all... More
