The Salem Witch Museum presents history in a unique and informative way. It was easy to follow the storyline and the use of the props was good for the most part. At the end of it we learned lots and walked away well informed.

Lots of good info...neat building...super nice people... but the presentation is a bit outdated. It reminds me of some of the older Disney animatronic deals. I’m not upset we went, but I think I was expecting more.

Was certainly worth a tour to understand hysteria of the day. Near plethora of restaurants and bars worthy of a trip. Combined with House of Seven Gables.

The museum is a little bit of a snore. I went with my fiancé and it was just “okay.” The building itself is kept very nice and it did have a neat gift shop where we made some purchases, but the content of the museum...More

I really can't say, they have set times for the tours we waited about 20 minutes, but October could be busier

About 40 minutes then a walk through the rest of the exhibits. An hour and a half should see you in and out. I found it interesting but each to their own.
