My daughter and I met my old college friend and her daughter at this museum. It was very interesting and the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Definitely a must see when learning about Salem's tragic history.

A lot of the house is original and they have a bunch of cool period artifacts to view. Very interesting. But none of the witches lived there or were tried there
