After their Witch School caused friction with Christians in small town Illinois (Co-owner Ed Hubbard: “We battled all sorts of fundamentalists … They tried to chase us out of town”), this Wiccan group moved to Salem in July. “Internationally known psychic” Don Lewis offers readings in the handsome front parlor/giftshop. The museum is a Wiccan guided tour though the history of witchcraft, as modeled by mannequins, from cave paintings to the Oracle at Delphi to celebrated contemporary wizards and witches like Oberon Zell-Ravenheart (who bred unicorns used in Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus). The mannequins are particularly pitiful and the pagan temple at the end, where you’re invited to join them for rituals every evening in October, is sadly shabby.
