This is a great place to learn about the Salem Witch Trials. We learned so much and the two presentations were very informative. Pricing is not bad.

My daughter had just finished the Crucible in school and was so excited to visit Salem on our last trip to Boston. Traveling there for business quite often I have never ventured to Salem or had any desire to. My daughter did all the research and took us from the Witch Museum to the House of the Seven Gables and... More

Average place to visit, not worth the $12 fee. Otherwise friendly guides and place to pick up souvenirs

Worth the trip as it is an interesting part of history. It is hard to understand why these girls had so much influence that so many people were put on trial and hanged on their accusations alone. They have a large room that has chairs in the middle and the statues light up around you as the story unfolds. The... More

Yes, the audio and wax figures are dated. If you go into the museum expecting a Disney experience for $12, you will be sorely disappointed. If, however, you enter the museum looking for a fun and enlightening way to spend part of your afternoon, you will be absolutely delighted. Myself and my fiance attended today; he'd been there once before... More

Imagine "Pirates of the Caribbean" had a twentieth of the budget, was not a flume ride, and was about witches instead of pirates and you should have a pretty good idea of what to expect. Though still oddly essential to a visit to Salem.

My husband and I were planning on visiting the Museum anyway, but entrance was included with our Go Boston card, so it was a given. Other than the backroom addition, it was exactly how I remembered it from 2000. We are pretty big into Salem & the Witch Trials history, so there wasn't really any new information offered by the...
