  • Very interesting place to visit. Loads of items relating to the subject. My daughter found it really interesting. £5 for adults and £4 for children. Worth it if you are interested by the subject, lots of things to read so you need a bit of time to look at things in detail.
  • We've been here many times and it's always interesting as they change their displays very often. The museum tells the stories of witches and witchcraft through the ages from the village wise woman with her cures for infertility and hexes for wrong doers to the modern age witch with crystal wands and flowing gowns. It's a great place to visit and very cheap too
  • Great little museum. Very reasonably priced. Good access, with stair lifts if required. Lots to see and is very unique and interesting. If your in the area you really should pay it a visit.
  • Such an amazing museum and in a beautiful location. It was our first time to Boscastle and defiantly won't be our last. With each visit we will be sure to check in at the museum. The history and artifacts they have here are mind blowing. Be sure to set aside a few hours so you can really see and learn about the history, myths and legends that this place holds
  • Its really interesting but you have to have an interest in this subject to fully appreciate it. It's not expensive and only takes about half an hour to 45 minutes. Definitely worth a visit
