The Original Witch’s Dungeon Classic Movie Museum Celebrates 50th Anniversary

October 7, 2016

Each October a Bristol tradition comes alive, the Witch’s Dungeon invites all to a lair of creepy and fantastical sets with creatures from classic horror films. The Witch’s Dungeon Classic Movie Museum is celebrating 50 years of delighting audiences from Bristol and all over the world this year! The non-profit museum has been open since 1966.

Enjoy famous movie props, classic movies shown on film, popcorn, and of course the Witch’s Dungeon tour, with life-size wax figures of your favorite frightful classic horror movie characters from the Fly to the Wolfman! “What a fantastic venue this will be…it looks like something out of an Edgar Allan Poe story. Congratulations!” – Mark Hamil. Admission is a donation of $6 per person and benefits the non-profit organizations of The Witch’s Dungeon and The Bristol Historical Society. Full events calendar listed below.
