I enjoyed this museum. The trial was interesting. The history and wax figures were quite accurate. I found that there was great information. A neat place to visit with quite a few photo opportunities.

Very interesting, well acted and with a great tour through some imaginary dungeons. It is very informative and educational and in sharp contrast to the comic witch tourism around. Would definately recommend.

very interesting guide around the house and dungeons where people were questioned after being accused of witchcraft. A short play introduces you to the sort of mindset of the era.

Not only do you have the opportunity to learn a little history through a play in the beginning, you also get to walk through a mock dungeon. Worth the money!!

Although it's not on the original spot of the original dungeon, it's still an interesting tour. Seeing what the victims of the witch trials had to suffer through is surreal. Although heartbreaking, it's definitely a lesson everyone should see and hear.

Could've been a great tour... definitely has the subject line for interest, but the props used... could add so much to the experience, but are seriously lacking.

Enjoyed it very much. The re-enacting of the trail is good and the tour was informative. If you are on the area you should visit them and take a tour.

I would say for that age group, the witch history museum. They both have mannequins but I think smaller children would better enjoy the Witch History Museum.
