  • I loved it here, I would return time and time again, it's wonderfully quirky without being tacky and educational without being boring. The whole museum is very well set up and very affordable.  more »
  • This was one of the places we wanted see while we were in Boscastle. Being school holidays we thought it would open, it was not. Very disappointed. Maybe they could review the opening hours.  more »

  • Although for some it would be possible to fly through if you are interested I would suggest you leave yourself ample time. There is just so much to see. We found it really interesting adults and children alike.
  • Loved it... Only small building but packed with information. Much more displays than I thought. Covers all areas of witchcraft. Well worth every penny.
  • Excellent museums showcasing a grand collection of witchcraft and magic curiosities and artefacts of the occult. Really enjoyable day out, however, be aware that this is not a spooky scary place that will thrill or terrify you, for that try Alton Towers, this is also not, I repeat NOT for children, its grim, disturbing, a lot of sexual references, and too macarbe for any child, unless they enjoy the esoteric and occult and can maturly look through this excellent museum, whilst still being respectful of occult culture. Some children who I think where looking for some kind a amusement arcade kept shout "err, whats that." And "yuck, thats weird" the whole time we looked around, their parents appeared to be cheeting them on too. As a practicer of the occult this did offened me a little, but boys will be boys I guess. So as I say not for children and please leave you're horrifically deformed pug dogs at home, I really didnt need them farting, grunting, defecating on and licking my ankle while I studied the skull of ancient Egyptian, so yeah it may say dogs allowed, but no dogs please. All in all a fantastic museum of the occult.
  • Great place, very informative. Inexpensive and a good location
  • Don't be misled by its size as this fascinating museum can keep you absorbed for ages. Fantastically curated and full to bursting with both traditional and pop culture references to witchcraft. I absolutely loved it!
