A scary witch museum is on its way to London

Not for the faint hearted…

A Cornish Witch Museum is packing up and heading to London. The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic was founded by Cecil Williamson, supernatural-obsessive. The museum was made to leave its original home in Stratford-upon-Avon, where it began in 1951. Local people were not happy about the museum’s presence, leading the museum to travel around the UK until settling in Cornwall.

The museum is home to the world’s biggest collection of witch artefacts and next month will be the first time you’ll be able to see its exhibits in London. This is perfect for all of the Halloween lovers out there!

Where will it be?
The equally ominous Viktor Wynd Museum in Hackney, which already features a number of skeletons, shrunken heads and stuffed animals…

The artefacts on view are super creepy! Witch mirrors, collections of old photographs, voodoo dolls, and recipes for spells! Maybe don’t bring your Gran.

The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic is at The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities, Fine Art & Natural History.

Open Nov 3-Feb 29 2018. Tickets are £8.
