Very interesting. Would recommend a visit. There is a library too if you apply to see which is fabulous. The artifacts are explained with examples of how some of them may have been used in the past.

I loved visiting this little museum, it is was so interesting and varied with some unusual artefacts and articles. We spent time making an effort to read all the though provoking information provided. The museum is well set out, a good use of the small space. With a fair entrance price this attraction is definitely worth a visit, perfect whatever... More

I wasn't sure what to expect from a museum with this title, maybe something kitschy or sensationalist, but it is exactly what it states and done in a respectful manner. The displays are devoted to giving accurate information about witchcraft and magic from past history up to the present day. The only museum about this topic I've ever seen that... More

My wife is interested in witchcraft, so whilst on our recent holiday in Cornwall we made a trip over to Boscastle to have a look at this. Due a small fire down near the harbour we had to park up in town (£1 for 4hrs - opposite doctor's surgery). It was quite a walk down (even harder back up). Once... More

Visiting here is definitely something out of the ordinary. Staff are really friendly, and very knowledgable. The exhibit itself is extensive and really interesting. I really enjoyed it here.

Very dark and interesting is how I would describe this little gem of a museum, more a collection of the weird and wonderful. Some great info on the old use and belief of plants.

We visited Boscastle for the day and decided to explore the Witchcraft Museum. This museum provides you with comprehensive information on the origins of witchcraft through to the present day. Please allow plenty of time to visit this museum, as there is a lot to see, read and take in.
