Museum of Witchcraft, Boscastle
While we were in Cornwall, I made sure to visit the Museum of Witchcraft in Boscastle. It’s a rather interesting mix that appears to have been assembled by modern occultists, as it not only covers the history of witch trials, and folk magic, but also contemporary BTW and related traditions. When we entered there was some kind of pagan music cd playing with all the familiar chants. At first it was a little hokey (especially the lifesize diorama of the wise woman’s cottage), but it got more interesting upstairs, where there were displays of actual folk magic finds from the local area, and pieces from the personal collections of people like Gerald Gardner and Aleister Crowley.
