Museum was pretty basic only $6 per person wasn't too bad. Not a lot to see but was very informative. Didn't have time to see all we wanted but we will be back

Not much of a museum, more like just listing to a story teller and then walking through the basement.

So...my cell phone wasn't working so I couldn't check TripAdvisor to see which Witch Exhibit I should visit. We didn't have much time in Salem, so quickly decided on the SWM. What a mistake! Sure, you get a bit of history of the trials, but...More

This museum doesn't have any artifacts to display, but it is a great place to learn about the events that made up the Salem Witch Trial. Do not expect a self-guided museum tour. Groups are let in every 20 minutes to watch a presentation before...More

I expected to see artifacts not an audio presentation with standing manequins. Great staff. A waste of time if you know the history.

Can I say hokey!!!!??? Ok, to be Far it did have a lot of history, but was infused with very low budget displays and shows. What a total waste of money!

Staff were really poor. As soon as we paid our money they ignored us. We were given no directions as to what to do, apparently we had to wait for a showing in the theatre but we had no idea. They audibly bickered among themselves...More

Most of what you see will be pre-recorded. It relies heavily on pop-culture, books and current movies, all information that most people would already know. Younger children would think this is fascinating.

The witch stories and Salem are hand in hand but how did it happen anc what affects has t had here. Go anc see the truth. And understand how a single lie killed 13 people

This was like sitting through a junior high school movie. The educational value of the museum is good but it is a bit outdated. Overall I'd recommend it, but take one of the historical walking tours and you'll get the same experience.

Check out city view they do Trolley Tours in Salem and in Boston and I think they also do a commuter from Boston to Salem.
