The Corwin House is a well preserved piece of the history of Salem. It was like stepping back in time. Everything is descriptively explained. The staff was very nice and inviting. This is another must see of Salem.

This is a place to see if you're going to Salem. It is one of the only places with any actual ties to the witch trials (one of the judges lived here). It's self-guided, although there are a couple people who answered questions. The place...More

Spent the afternoon in Salem and this was one of our stops. Great to see after the museum, which provides additional context. Very small, so it can get crowded. Nice way to get out of the cold and learn about the times.

This is only a small museum which provides an interesting insight into life in the late 1600’s around the time of the witch hunts. You will soon learn some very quirky but interesting facts, I was certainly surprised. There may be some link to the...More

I found the Corwin/Witch House to be rather interesting. It's a self-guided tour that requires patience, time, and a lot of reading. If you don't have all three, you won't enjoy this place. The house and artifacts contained within are true to the time period,...More
