Hello! Our names are Kat and Toni.  We are the curators of the Raymond Buckland Museum of Witchcraft and Magick.  Mr. Buckland, inspired by Gerald Gardner, started collecting witchcraft and Pagan artifacts in 1968. The collection has grown to well over 500 artifacts, ranging from Ancient Egyptian Ushabti’s to documented artifacts from the Salem Witch trials. The museum collection also houses artifacts from Sybil Leek, Monique Wilson, Aleister Crowley, Raymond Buckland, Gerald Gardner, Sun Bear, and numerous others.
We are very excited to have this opportunity to educate the general public about the history of numerous Pagan religions. Our focus for the museum is not only to maintain and share the history through the museum artifacts, but to also begin to once again expand this priceless collection. Our goal is to house and display artifacts from many of the Pagan Elders that have been instrumental in making Paganism what it is today. .
Thankfully, there are no other collections in the United States like Mr. Buckland’s, and we are very fortunate that he has worked very hard to acquire such fantastic and historical artifacts.
We are asking for donations to help in the revitalization and restoration of some of the museum artifacts.  We also need help with purchasing display cases to ensure the safety of the artifacts.  Even though the museum collection is a small one, in comparison to large museums, the cost to maintain it can be overwhelming.  We would greatly appreciate anything that would help us bring this amazing collection to the public.
