I feel the museum survives because of the area of the country it is in and the amount of visitors the town has in general.

When in area this is one of the things that are well worth a stop. It is something a little bit different and quirky to see. It has nothing to do with children books witchcraft, focuses on history and actual true stories.

My wife loved it...topped up her book of spells for another year. I didn't go in as I was in photo mode but she highly recommends it " not to be missed and some very unusual exhibits "

While visiting Boscastle we came upon the MWM and only having an hour until closing, we decided to go back the next day. We are so glad we did - the museum is full to the rafters of interesting snippets information, explanations and unusual items on display that will dispel the myths and prejudices around witchcraft and magic. Make sure... More
