If you only pay to enter one house/attraction in Salem, this is the one. It's the only structure still standing with direct ties to the Witch Trials, and much of the original floors, beams and furniture are original unlike some other places in Salem. The...More

I love history, so I still enjoyed this, but honestly it I’d barely worth the trip. It was a total of 4 rooms. Nothing inside is original to the home, but is authentic to the time period. Ok if you are in the area but...More

I truly enjoyed visiting the Witch House and seeing all the pieces of history that they have collected and displayed for the public. The books. The beds. The witch bottles. The confessions. And much more. I think I saw a few witches in the house....More

It's cool to see some old things but also you feel like you're going to fall through the floor the entire time because the house is so old.
