  • Such an interesting place to visit. We spent a long time in there. Dogs are welcome on leads and both of ours seemed to enjoy their visit! A huge amount of objects to look at, from skulls to poppets. Plus the accompanying texts are very informative. Colourful and sometimes a bit gory or creepy, something for everyone. Gift shop good on way out.
  • It's an okay place. (The walk to the edge of the coast passed the museum is spectacular!) The women that work there didn't talk or give us a hint to look out for this or that to make it exciting. Very interesting facts. Not a lot in there but we were happy to pay the £5 per person entry to support it - sasly the museum lost a lot of items in the flood. I hope they get the support to keep collecting & improving :)
  • Nice and magic place. We liked this unusual museum. Do not miss it, it is unbelievable and Boscastle, the village on the harbour, is very very nice. In the evening it was raining and the tide was growing: walking around the harbour was spectacular, the shape of the witch of the cliff, the wind, the incoming waves, the low path going in the water... only a pirate vessel was missing!
  • Interesting in an odd way. Not a place to take the kids. 15+ probably a good idea. If you like dark, ritual or black magic then probably the place to go. Nice walk down to the harbour suggested after visiting to cleanse the soul.
  • There is a not a place where I have seen so many unusual and interesting paranormal things packed into one small place. Staff are friendly and once you pay you walk around the museum which was the collection of a local paranormal researcher of the area. It is well worth a visit. If however you have children of a slightly squish nature you might want to go in front of them to ensure they don't see anything you wouldn't otherwise want them to see. There were six of us in our party and we all thought it was great.
