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.

Staff of this attraction provide insight as to how people accused of being witches would suffer in the dungeon.

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.

We all enjoyed this tour. The grandkids were a little apprehensive about the dungeon part but all in all a good 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.
