We went to this museum over christmas break 2018. We had wanted to go to the Witch House but it was closed due to the government shut down. We went here not really knowing what to expect. The auditorium is like a 360 presentation of...More
The tour starts off walking and reading. You go into an open room and stand and then watch a presentation. It does give a good history but felt it could have been better. Parking is NONE and you need to park around the common or...More

Thank you for your review of the Salem Witch Museum. It is great to read that you found your time to be interesting and informative. I will certainly pass on the kind words regarding the staff.

If you had to choose between the two, I would probably do the Dungeon.
Was interesting and our guide was ok, although as there were only 4...More
