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.

We enjoyed touring the Corwin house and seeing the furniture and artifacts of the day and reading the history. Self guided tour but guides available to answer questions. Took about 25 mins as we read the history posted throughout.

This was a small place, but it packs in a lot of information. They display a mix of real museum-type pieces and modern-day examples to show what the house might have looked like during the relevant historical period. I enjoyed learning about some things I...More

Small, old house with self-guided tour. The guides inside were very helpful and informative. I'm not the type to ask many questions but based on my limited interaction with them, I bet if I was, I could have been there for hours.

Cool historical attraction that offers an excellent slice of life look to the times. A short self tour that would be an excellent before lunch visit - on the historical red line route and just down a bit from the Rope's House.

This was a lovely museum and peek at life in the 1860's. The self-tour was informative and the guides stationed throughout were knowledgeable.

Only house left in Salem with direct history to the witchcraft trials. Self guided tour with lots to read to get the full understanding. Can be crowded making the experience not as enjoyable, especially in October. Pictures inside are allowed.
