The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic is a museum dedicated to European witchcraft and magic. It's located in the village of Boscastle in Cornwall in south-west England. It houses exhibits devoted to folk magic, ceremonial magic and Wicca. Cecil Williamson opened it in 1951.
Magic, Witches & Devils in the Early Modern World reveals how magic, diabolical witchcraft, and ghostly encounters inspired fear and curiosity on an unprecedented scale from the 15th - 18th centuries. The exhibition ran from 21 January - 21 August 2016.
