Good example of a 17th century house of a wealthy person, a judge. Not very full, but enough to get a feel. Not much to read as a soft-guided tour. A bit expensive giving the very small size (8.25$) and limited exposition. Prepare for a...More

This is a good self-guided house tour to give you an idea about the houses in the 1600's in Salem. It was owned by one of the judges during he Witch Trials - that is it's only connection to witches. We enjoyed looking around and...More

The Witch House was the home of John Hathorne who was the main judge involved in the witch trials. Whilst it does include some information about the witch trials and the living conditions back in the 1600s, it’s not filled with information and perhaps would...More

Self guided tour thru a very historical home. Lots to read, see & learn, I felt like I was back in the 1600s at times. Has a small gift shop. Can tour the whole home in 30-45 min I'd say. We really enjoyed our visit....More

You can easily go through the house in 1/2 hour to 45 minutes. The displays were set up well and I was informed and entertained. I had absolutely no idea there was borderline cannibalism in the times of the colonies when it came to treatment...More

We were able to see the whole house and material within 15 minutes, so the price for this location is very high compared to the material. However, there were some unique facts within the house that we had never heard or learned before. Will have...More
