The Salem Witch Museum was a little cheesy, but it's something (it seems) you have to do once. As a Christian, though, their depictions of the devil, demonic symbols, and witchcraft made me a little uncomfortable. But, I have to give them the fact that...More

Great telling of the story of the history of witches around the world. It’s over theatrical and antiquated but this is part of the charm. It really is a must do.

It was interesting to learn the true stories of what went on and how it all started. I thought the witches were all burned at the stake...turned out that is not true. It is short and informative. There is a little gift shop and great...More

Visited today. Tours run every 30 minutes. Our tour had about 70 middle school kids, whom actually were very well behaved. Tour starts in a room that has different blocks of scenes set to look like that time period. Each lights up individually and talks...More

Not a wow exhibit but it was ok. I heard it was the best around but the guides weren’t great and I felt we were in Disney

Love this museum. Its a very entertaining explanation of the witch trials. It has a creepy feeling to it, almost like you are part of the trials.

It’s quite cheap to get in and the first hour gives you a good introduction to what happened in Salem. It’s a bit dated though. The figures aren’t that realistic and may not keep the younger generations attention. The 2nd part is listening to a...More

We thought the museum was very informative in describing the back story and history of witches in Salem. The price may be a little expensive for the experience. The first part has everyone in one auditorium while a recording plays and a light focuses on...More

We went there with my wife and 2 sons (ages 11). The show was kind of cheesy, but good history. Part 2was a live history lesson. Sort of interesting. Not worth the $42 we paid, but it was OK.

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.
