This Museum Exhibits Spooky Historic Witchcraft & Magic Artifacts

The Buckland Museum of Witchcraft and Magick was founded by Raymond Buckland in 1966. Originally the founder stored his collection in the basement of his home, quickly gathering strange and spooky objects dating back to ancient Egypt and the Salem Witch Trials.

In 1976, Raymond Buckland moved to New Hampshire where he opened the museum from 1977 to 1980. Unfortunately, because of a rigorous writing and lecture schedule, he then had to place the museum collection into storage, where it remained for a number of years. The museum collection was briefly reestablished in New Orleans in 1999 where it passed through multiple hands before being salvaged by Rev. Velvet Reith. 

In July of 2015, the museum collection was relocated to Ohio. Currently it is being restored, and is displayed in the newly founded Buckland Museum of Witchcraft & Magick – giving those interested in macabre objects another chance to browse the shelves. Check out some of the fascinating pieces currently on display in this unique museum.
