We thought this was probably the best display and your about the witch trials. The second part is about how the perception changed over time about witches and what can be learned

The building is georgeous. There is a lot of information available. The museum describes the events that took place during the witch hunt and hangings. I wished it was more interactive rather than just sitting in a chair and listening to a recording.

The whole production was a lot of fun. It was the quality of an 80's B movie and I loved it. Informative wax sculpture displays.

The first half is an historical accounting of the witch hysteria, and is very well done. The second half, however, is more a historical evolution of Wicca, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but has NOTHING to do with the hysteria of 1692. As a...More

It was entertaining to a certain extent - almost like a throw back tourist destination. Go - support the local economy - sit on the white benches because they are easier to swivel around on to watch the presentation.

Check out city view they do Trolley Tours in Salem and in Boston and I think they also do a commuter from Boston to Salem.
