SALEM, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) – A local museum is helping people who wish to communicate with someone from beyond the grave.
The Salem Witch Board Museum is dedicated to the history and mystery of Witch Boards. Otherwise known as Ouija boards, these boards remain controversial in the world of the paranormal.
“There’s a lot of negativity associated with the Ouija board and personally I like that,” said owner John Kozik. “I would say I’m pretty obsessed by the Ouija board.”
Kozik owns about 500 boards and 100 of them are currently on display in the museum. One is available for anyone brave enough to try it.
“Most recently I had a mother and three kids that probably used the board for about a half hour,” Kozik said. “[They were] talking to somebody’s grandparents.”
The museum is open every day of the week during the month of October.
