The Boscastle Museum of Witchcraft & Magic explores all aspects of witchcraft and spiritual practices through its range of exhibits. The museum was the brainchild of Cecil Williamson, who had an interest in magic and witchcraft since a child. He eventually opened the museum in 1960, choosing the village of Boscastle because of its ties to ancient magical practices. Williamson was also a skilled filmmaker, lending to the theatrical displays of various objects around the museum. Ranging from the dark ages to modern voodoo, this museum offers something for any eerie-trip goer seeking to learn more about the history of magic.
