My lady and I stopped here and we were not impressed at all.Very cheesy and a huge waste of time..not even remotely interesting and if you have ever stubbed your toe on a sidewalk you have had more fun than you ever will at this place..Save your money..

There are two parts to the museum. The first is not terrible. A low-budget presentation regarding the Salem witch trials. The second part, however, was essentially a Wiccan recruitment presentation which can be summarized as the Christian Church bad; Kindly Wiccans good. Unfortunately, our tour guide's history background seems to have solely come from reading a Wiccan recruitment flyer. Despite... More

This is a great place to learn about the Salem Witch Trials. We learned so much and the two presentations were very informative. Pricing is not bad.

My daughter had just finished the Crucible in school and was so excited to visit Salem on our last trip to Boston. Traveling there for business quite often I have never ventured to Salem or had any desire to. My daughter did all the research and took us from the Witch Museum to the House of the Seven Gables and... More

Worth the trip as it is an interesting part of history. It is hard to understand why these girls had so much influence that so many people were put on trial and hanged on their accusations alone. They have a large room that has chairs in the middle and the statues light up around you as the story unfolds. The... More

Yes, the audio and wax figures are dated. If you go into the museum expecting a Disney experience for $12, you will be sorely disappointed. If, however, you enter the museum looking for a fun and enlightening way to spend part of your afternoon, you will be absolutely delighted. Myself and my fiance attended today; he'd been there once before... More
