Interesting and unique!
My friend and I went to the Buckland Museum of Witchcraft & Magick because we’re interested by the occult. The museum itself isn’t huge, but it’s a modest size. Entry is $7 which isn’t bad at all and Steven, one of the owners, tells you tales and facts as you make your way around the museum. He wasn’t pushy at all. I enjoyed having him there to answer questions as they arose. There’s a neat little gift shop before you head into the museum and we picked some things up from there. It’s easy to miss the place when you’re driving, but it’s definitely worth a stop if you’re into that sort of stuff! Spent about an hour there and pictures were allowed.

A Place that can amuse and enlighten.
Having known its name sake, We were in Cleveland and decided to visit the Museum. After talking to the owner Steven, a group of us went. First Parking is in the back so be aware.. tight parking. The Museum has a small shop in front selling tee shirts and other items. The Collection in the back is a great representation of Wicca and as extended to some other traditions..It was relayed that Steven the owner wishes to have it open to all traditions artifacts, making this Museum a very Important Place for the larger Pagan Community. We found our guide Stephen very knowledgeable and a very accommodating to our needs. We hope to be able to visit again someday.. Everyone should when in the area. You can spend hours just viewing the collection of Wicca and Pagan History Artifacts..

New Witchcraft Museum Features Occult Artifacts Once Owned by Aleister Crowley
The Buckland Gallery of Witchcraft and Magick opens on April 29, 2017 in a room off of the Tremont record store A Separate Reality… The gallery’s curators Steven Intermill and Jillian Slane were accommodating enough to give Dangerous Minds some time with the collection. It features artifacts from a number of Wiccan luminaries, and even some possessions of legendary occultist Aleister Crowley’s.
A collection of Wiccan artifacts and occult paraphernalia started by the leader of the Long Island Coven.
…Raymond Buckland, leader of what became known as the Long Island Coven, had been collecting historical witchcraft objects, oddities, and occult paraphernalia for years. He amassed hundreds of pieces, and with shelves bursting he eventually moved into larger quarters, opening the Buckland Museum of Witchcraft and Magick. …
Now, with a new curator and small gallery to show it off, it has been reborn as the Buckland Gallery of Witchcraft and Magick.
Although space is limited, a large portion of the collection is on display. There’s even room for the Demon in a Box, captured by Buckland in the 1970s with the help of a ceremonial magician.
