A Unique and totally interesting Museum.Wish I had,had more Time to read information on articles,but with a 8 year old in toe,no chance of that.Which is only downside, the younger children`s attention span not cut out, to waiting for adults to read up on all the history.But in fairness that would apply to most Museums.(other than Dinosauars!)

My sister and I had wanted to visit this museum last year but due to time constraints had to delay our trip. Having grown up watching cliche films about witches (The Witches, Hocus Pocus) we had always held an interest in anything 'mystical'. We were greeted with a smile (a characteristic of many Cornish folk) and welcomed us warmly to... More

We visited the museum today with our dog. It was lovely to be able to take our dog in with us, as many attraction do not welcome them, we got a very warm welcome and the pooch was given lots of fuss. The museum is very interesting and informative, all the displays are clearly labelled with plenty of information on... More

Excellent, interesting, informative, eye opening. My wife, my son (10.5) and I found the articles and artifacts really interesting. Its a shame so many people were persecuted the the "C" cult.

The museum was packed full of incredible displays of such interesting artefacts, stories and sound bites. We arrived just after it opened on a Sunday and it was lovely and quiet, we nearly had the place to ourselves which is lovely as there is so much to take in. We're going to have to come back as we enjoyed it... More

Visited this museum purely because we saw the sign on the way to bodmin, so we thought why not! Such an interesting place! Lots of witch/wicca artifacts and lots information about them as well. Very interesting and was worth the visit.

On Saturday 5th April we visited the museum and on the off chance enquired if we could have access to the library that we had heard so much of. We were advised to peruse the museum and that after we could visit the library. The museum has been updated for this season with some interesting artefacts etc although it does... More

I think a lot of folks would find this an interesting visit. There is a lot of history to Witchcraft and Cornwall is particularly attuned to witches and wizards.

We made the special trip to Boscastle to check out this museum and we were not disappointed, from the friendly and helpful staff to the informative and thought provoking displays this was a successful trip. There was a lot to see and read and the museum presents itself as a serious and respectful look at witchcraft, superstition and worship across... More

Interesting, enjoyable, affordable and fun! Witch museum? This one. We visited on a whim, not a broomstick and we had a magical family day out, the staff were friendly and helpful with a real passion for the subject and the museum itself was full of interesting artefacts with detailed explanations alongside enlightening us. Definitely worth a special trip, one that... More
