Two of the four women whom we encountered spoke clearly and were readily understood; one of the two in the brief enactment of one of the witch trials was difficult to follow. After the trial, the visit to the dungeon replica was somewhat interesting.

I have been to Salem a few times but never visited this "museum" before. My daughters thought it sounded interesting. We had to go to one of the touristy places and definitely did not want to go to the Witch Museum which hasn't been updated...More

You get what you pay for with this tour. It was a good and brief overview that the kids enjoyed. We only had time for 1 museum the day we visited and we decided on this one because of the dungeon. The re-enactment really added...More

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.
