Don't waste your time. For $12 you get to stand in line to get into an overcrowded room which has models of various figures from the Witch trials, they're pretty awful looking and can't been seen from every seating position - and many just sat...More

OK, if you’re in Salem, you sort of need to go to something related to the witches and frankly there is about a million things to choose from. This place has timed tickets so be sure to make this a first stop in town so...More

I am torn with Salem Witch Museum. It's less like a museum and more like the "Hall of Presidents". Informative but boring. I would suggest testing out ditching the pre-recorded tape, and have employees in period dress speaking and making it more interactive. Especially in...More

Visiting from Georgia, went here and I thought it was a waste of time. No live actors, old recordings, and just plain dumb. I don’t recommend wasting your time here.

Growing up in grade school Salem was always a stop on a field trip! It was great to bring my daughters here to learn some history in the "witch" city. The museum has not changed since I was a kid so does not give you...More

As others have said- it's not exactly a museum but more of a story telling show. We were looking for an activity to get more info on the history of the city and witch trials and this did a great job of illustrating that. If...More
