Overview

    What to Expect
    When you arrive at the Salem Witch Museum, you must exchange your booking voucher for a timed admission ticket (make sure you do this no later than 12pm for the first available presentation time). 

    Then, at your specified time, head inside the museum to check out its main exhibit about the witch trials of 1692, which are depicted through life-size scenes. Your ticket also gives you access to the museum's second exhibit, 'Witches: Evolving Perceptions,' a tour focusing on witch stereotypes, the pagan midwife, modern witchcraft, and the phenomenon of witch hunts. 

    Before you leave the museum, check out the store for souvenirs, gifts, locally made items, and books about the history of the witch trials.

    If you’re a goth and fascinated by the witchcraft trials of 1692, the Salem witch museum is a must. Gothic travel blogger La Carmina wore a Puritan Japanese dress and recommends coming early as admissions sell out and you cannot book in advance. The dramatic show is fantastic

    As much as I love Salem, this place was such a disappointment. Whoever is in charge doesn't seem to understand what a museum is. This is essentially one person telling you the basics of the Salem witch trials, (which anybody visiting Salem at Halloween likely already knows) in a

    I visited during a business trip. Salem square is amazing and full of US history. The witch museum is a poignant reminder that we are all afraid of what we don’t understand. So many hanged because they were falsely accused. The museum is interesting and has a great gift shop
