DESCRIPTION

The Museum of Witchcraft in Boscastle, Cornwall, houses the world's largest collection of witchcraft related artefacts and regalia. The museum has been located in Boscastle for fifty years and is amongst Cornwall's most popular museums.

The museum houses a library of over 3000 books that relate to witchcraft or the occult.

The Richel Collection is one of the worlds best collections of ritual/sex magic artifacts that the Museum inherited in March 2000.

The Museum of Witchcraft is home to a good collection of letters, photographs and various other 
documents mainly from the mid twentieth century. Amongst the collection are letters from Gerald Gardner, 
Alex Sanders, Cecil Williamson and many of the influential characters involved in witchcraft and the occult.

We hope you can come and visit us at Boscastle to experience the museum in person.
