We went to the museum during one of there candlelit evenings with 4 children aged 6-12. The museum is full of lots and lots of interesting memorabilia. From dried out cats to paintings and books. It's fascinating! The more you look the more you see! Friendly staff, lovely little gifts that won't break the bank. Just good old fashioned entertainment.... More

My husband and 10 year old daughter visited here and was not overly impressed. We waited outside as it was £5 per adult and luckily we made the right decision not good value for money. Good points - there were interesting facts but not much more Wouldn't pay to go there!

As a writer and historian, this was a must see for my next novel. Bosworth is lovely, the walking is mostly level and is easily navigated. There is a small stream running through and the path to the museum, which forms a pleasant loop with a bridge, returning back to the town, shops, tea rooms and restaurants. We saw many... More

We all have our own ideas about witchcraft and magic - this is well worth a visit. Interesting artifacts and information - myth and truth.

I visited Boscastle recently and saw this tiny museum. It's not expensive to get in but the artefacts and information is overwhelming. I wish I could have stayed longer to fully enjoy it. If you are interested in magic this is a must visit. I wouldn't recommend it to very small children due to some of the exhibits.

The Museum of Witchcraft in Boscastle has to be situated in one of the most beautiful locations in the UK. Nestled in the River Valency valley just yards from the harbour of one of the most picturesque villages I have ever visited. Inside there is a mixture of exhibits and vignettes of the standard that one would expect from a... More

A collection of stories and artefacts which would be fascinating to anyone with a curiosity about witchcraft. Apparently the largest collection in the world. Well worth the £5 entrance fee. There is a fair amount of reading involved, and many photographs to see. Really interesting. Only a couple of hours at the most to see and read everything. We learned... More

It's not scary even though there was only me visiting at that time. There're many interesting things with descriptions.
