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
