It's open for a year.  It's close enough for a day trip the next time we go 'home' for a visit.  :)

oooh!  I'm so doing that!  Thank you for posting this!! This is just under 2 hours from me:) :) :)

 

--Oh, and for those who enjoy bones, and historical looks at medicine and maladies there is also the Mutter Museum in Philly.  This includes weird shit like skeletons of conjoined twins etc.. Give it a google.  While your there saying the magic museum, you may want to check it out.  http://muttermuseum.org

Come on Aefre- you can do it.  Dust the damn broom off and get on over here.   You can bring your house guests and let us show them how "real English" is spoken- lol:).

I'd love to respond more thoroughly to your invitation, but because of your American accent, I haven't a clue what you just said :D

Hey Aefre, If you are looking for a great little witchcraft museum in the UK take a look in Boscastle :)

 

I went there recently, I will put some pics up if people are interested.... lots of interesting stuff.

Hi Llyr, I've heard about this wonderful museum, but never been.  To be honest, I could probably fly to the US in less time than it would take to drive down to Cornwall lol, especially on that cart track of a road in Summer!

 

However, I am now inspired to give them a call and find out when they open in the Winter months.  It is a place I plan on visiting.

 

Please do put your pictures up, I'd love a sneak preview x

absolutely! bring on the underpass under Stonehenge (and replace the Happy Eaters en route with something more tempting)!

actually I think it's Little Chef not Happy Eater. (clearly I've been reflecting deeply on this)

Be careful what you wish for.  They'll probably replace them with Nando's :(
