Well, let me start with what I did like. I enjoyed the story narration of the first show and the staff were very friendly. Unfortunately, that was all I enjoyed. I was not expecting a wax showcasing experience. I was hoping to see interesting artifacts...More

My first tour in Salem. Definitely buy the all access pass so you can see all of the tours for a better price.

One of the worst museum ever seen. It is just a very simple presentation. Good price would be 1 dollar

Reasonably priced ticket for the tour provided but it’s a bit hokey in its entirety. I would have enjoyed more information like that in the lobby where you read of the history on your own. The museum is fine for folks of all ages and...More

We arrived for the last tour of the day and were not disappointed. We only had one-half day in Salem and this museum pretty much summarized the events of the witch hunt in Salem. We would go again.

An old church converted into a large museum. It had a nice well done presentation of the witch trials and more. About 45 mins long and enjoyable

About 40 minutes then a walk through the rest of the exhibits. An hour and a half should see you in and out. I found it interesting but each to their own.
