Old house where the judge lived during the witch trials. It's mostly preserved although rather lacking in furniture. Still an interesting tour of an old house and you hear a little bit of witch trials history.

I can not recommend this venue - from the poorly managed sales of tickets at the front (we arrived just behind a enormous group, were treated rudely and ignored), to the extraordinarily basic and poorly displayed historical information. There were about 3-4 things to read...More

This house provided a lot of interesting Salem and Witch Trial history, but a little pricey for the short self-guided tour. It was more interesting for my mother, who has not read the Crucible. The staff was very knowledgeable. I was expecting more "witch" stories...More

The Witch House is one of the true pieces of actual history in Salem. It is not commercialized and the artifacts are real. This is the house of one of the judges from the witch trials and the curators have done a nice job keeping...More

Perhaps October (even the first day of it!) is just a busy season, but the house was a bit crowded for me. Only one docent on hand and no guided tours when we went, but there's a wealth of early furniture and cool artifacts (the...More

A lot of great history, but they need to limit the amount of people allowed in the house at one time (or lower the limit)- it was pretty busy the day and time we went through and it got pretty crowded in most of the...More

Very disappointed in this, for the $8 fee per person to get in. I would of paid maybe $1-2 to get in. Nothing to the place as far as old homes go, and nothing I haven't seen before. I thought it would have more 'witch'...More
