This museum is in a Gothic church and highlights the facts of the Salem Witch trials with different scenes. It is not flashy but well done and factual. I was told by a local that is is the best museum on the topic.

Things to see are actually based on a guided tour and two presentations and that's it. I was expecting to see an exhibition though. Everything took about an hour to happen.

Made the trip from Boston to Salem especially since my daughter studied this at A-level. This is really amateurish with scant insight into what happened here. The first exhibition is just mannequins with a voiceover. You then move to another area where the history of...More
