Then don't miss this place! Amazing statues of famous characaters. Little known facts and even face molds of famous people. Signed memorabilia and a place to watch old horror movies all included for the cheap price of 11 dollars. One of the least expensive attractions...More

Every year I make a trip to Salem and always make it a point to stop here. It’s not your typical “haunted attraction” that you’ll find in Salem. It’s actually not haunted at all, it’s a mini museum of horror classics! It’s creepy and eerie...More

Which reviews did you read? While we understand the compulsion to take photos of things one sees is strong we like to point out that this isn't a rare rule in museums. And for those who are curious, we do create environments for many of...More

This had a lot of great art and detail to everything inside. It was very fun. It's also a nice touch that they have celebrities from past horror movies do autographs and photo ops during certain days/times in October.

I didn’t think it was worth the $12 or $13 we paid. It’s in a very small space so it literally is just the wax figures... no sets or anything. I feel like we were in and out in 5 minutes. The wax figures were...More

The atmosphere is very cool, but you aren't allowed to take pictures so it doesn't really do anyone any good. There doesn't seem to be anything unique in the museum, just blurbs about old horror movies that you could get on wikipedia.More

It was $15.00 for adults in when I went in October 2018, but you can often get discounts through online ticketing or package deals.
