Great place to teach kids about the Salem Witch Trials. Recommend for 5th graders and older. (I don't recommend this place for the younger students unless you've had discussions with them about tree-hangings first.) The museum staff starts by having you watch a play of...More

I went to the Witch History Museum and the girl talked me into getting a combo deal for the Witch Dungeons as well, I’m so glad I did! The museum itself wasn’t good so I just recommend paying for the dungeon. Firstly you watch a...More

The Witch Dungeon Museum offered a look at what it would have been like to live in the dungeons during this period, something that no other museum showed. The reenactment was different, somewhat interesting, but the main attraction is the dungeon downstairs. The dungeon tour...More

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!!

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.
