We arrived for the last tour of the day and were not disappointed. We only had one-half day in Salem and this museum pretty much summarized the events of the witch hunt in Salem. We would go again.

An old church converted into a large museum. It had a nice well done presentation of the witch trials and more. About 45 mins long and enjoyable

You sit through a dramatically narrated presentation looking at staged scenes around a room and then walk through a room of more staged scenes are recorded info. Not necessarily worth the money, but not terrible. Provides history of witch trials.

We visited as it was right next door to our Inn. There are lots of witch experiences in Salem - probably too many - but this was good. Good explanation of what went on and why

About 40 minutes then a walk through the rest of the exhibits. An hour and a half should see you in and out. I found it interesting but each to their own.
