  • Excellent, how they pack so much in such a relatively small place must be by using magic...You need to allow a couple of hours if you want to 'review' everything, possibly more. The good news is that you can leave for a coffee or a pint and come back for round two. Just make sure you put enough parking time on your car ticket in the nearby car park.
  • A unique and interesting visit. Very informative and lots on display - amazed at how much is in here based on it's small size from the outside. Love Boscastle and have been visiting since childhood holidays. Renovations from the devastating floods have brought the entire village back to it's full glory. Beautiful place and the Museum only adds to it's character. Definitely recommend.
  • An interesting museum, it's not too big so there tends to be clumps of people moving around that block your way at times. There's a lot of interesting material available but it can sometimes be hard to read or know where that is (unlabelled drawers, no indication that they're part of the exhibit). All in all, a good place to visit if you're interested and happy to pay the entrance fee.
  • A valuable resource showing an vital part of our culture, so cruelly treated at times in our recent past. Wise ways, cunning folk and ritual magic. Feel so close to another way to make sense of a complex world.
  • stunning exhibits - incredible atmosphere - you have to spend hours looking at the various artifacts - these are real , actual , charged and somewhat freaky - do not miss this place - it’s really unnerving and ultimately very very informative ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
