Really interesting, this guided tour gives great insight as to how a handful of girls can begin to point fingers at friends, neighbors and even family members of witchcraft. Enjoyed the recreation of a witch trial, then down to the dungeon where they and others were kept. Good insight as to the Puritans religious beliefs.

We bought the 3 pack of museum tours that included this museum, the witch house museum, and the pirate museum. This was fun for the entire family and the dungeon replica was neat to see. It was our favorite out of all the museums.

It claims to be the dungeon where the accused were kept, but then they tell you it was actually somewhere else. It's an okay tour with a guide that gives you some of the historical info. The displays are pretty hokey and distracting from the story.

A little show and a little tour. The family enjoyed the presentation and tour. It is quick and provides an interesting perspective of the types of conditions.

The tour guide, I believe her name was Alyssa, was amazing. She was very knowledgeable and articulate in her delivery of the history. The actors were also fantastic! The dungeon will give you shivers for sure. I highly recommend that you do not miss this place on your tour of Salem.

We did the 10:30am event time on Monday in April and there were about 10 others attending. This could probably take 60-70 people easily and is probably packed between summer and fall. Anyway we thoroughly enjoyed this and they had my kids attention from beginning to end; not a peep or wine between them. I learned some things that I... More

The Witch Dungeon Museum is an exciting performance and an exciting tour. You first see a wonderful performance about a court witch trial, then head downstairs to see a replica of the old witch dungeons! For the elderly, bring coats and scarves, it is cold downstairs because it isn't heated. The replica is very accurate and nice to see. Would... More
