Reboot of Buckland museum set for Apr. 29

CLEVELAND, Ohio –More than half a century after Raymond Buckland first opened the doors to his Museum of Witchcraft and Magick, members of the public will be able to once again view artifacts from the collection. The new Buckland Gallery of Witchcraft & Magick is scheduled to open its doors in Ohio at the end of the month. The gallery’s collection was first accumulated on Long Island, spent time on display in New Hampshire, and fell into a legal dispute in New Orleans before reaching its new home in the midwest. Buckland, who spread knowledge of Gardnerian Wicca in the United States and has written many books on the subject, will be on hand to cut the ribbon to the new gallery. “This is a real milestone in the long history of the collection,” he said.

Buckland Museum poised to reopen in midwest

OHIO– The Buckland Museum of Witchcraft and Magick has been in existence, off and on, since 1966. But the collection, which was once featured in publications from the New York Times to the Scholastic Voice, hasn’t been publicly displayed since Jimmy Carter was president. Now two longtime friends of Raymond Buckland – the man who brought Gardnerian witchcraft to the United States – are trying once again to make an ever-growing collection of Pagan artifacts available to the public. The museum’s heyday was its first ten years from 1966-1976. During that time, Buckland himself housed it on Long Island where he lived.
