We stopped along our drive up the coast. The town is very quaint and parking was easy at the meters. The presentation/tour took about an hour and was interesting and the sets were well done. It could be scary for younger children although we did...More

First time in Salem. This was the first thing my sister and I did. We loved it. Although not a traditional museum it is done well. Two short shows. Great for all ages.

Totally Commercial Shows. The shop is total touristy with worthless stuff. Just good for clicking pictures from the outside.

This museum is in a Gothic church and highlights the facts of the Salem Witch trials with different scenes. It is not flashy but well done and factual. I was told by a local that is is the best museum on the topic.

As someone who is fascinated by the strange and paranormal, this attraction was perfect. Not only does it offer some of the creepy vibes often associated with witches, but it teaches the truth behind the witch trials. The first part is a story told with...More
