Just in time for Halloween

I have no intention of ever setting foot inside the Salem, Massachusetts Salem Witch Board Museum but this spooky little museum in the historic town seems like the perfect spot for Halloween. The attraction located in the town that’s famous for the notorious witch trials, has a unique angle: ouija boards, ouija boards, and nothing but Ouija boards. Here’s what the Boston Globe has to say about it:

All in all, the museum collection totals 300 to 500 boards.Kozik said his grandmother used her board alone — a feat some would consider bad luck, according to Ouija superstitions. Though a young Kozik was never allowed to be in the same room as her when she used it, he tried to spy from a top stair or through her window hoping to catch a glimpse of which letters and numbers her fingers darted across.

Kozik searches high and low for additions to his Ouija board collection and has built up a large network of fans and friends who help steer him toward his next find. Typically, he finds boards at estate sales, yard sales, or flea markets. Whether it’s conversing at the local dry cleaners, convenience store, or even worldwide, Kozik said he leaves “no stone unturned.”
