A very good show of one of the Witch trials by two very good actresses. This was followed by a tour around the recreation of a jail. The size was fascinately small for the 150 inhabitants.

We did the visitors center film and the witch history museum and this was BY FAR the best for the money. It was interesting, informative, high quality.
