The tour guide, I believe her name was Alyssa, was amazing. She was very knowledgeable and articulate in her delivery of the history. The actors were also fantastic! The dungeon will give you shivers for sure. I highly recommend that you do not miss this place on your tour of Salem.

We did the 10:30am event time on Monday in April and there were about 10 others attending. This could probably take 60-70 people easily and is probably packed between summer and fall. Anyway we thoroughly enjoyed this and they had my kids attention from beginning to end; not a peep or wine between them. I learned some things that I... More

The Witch Dungeon Museum is an exciting performance and an exciting tour. You first see a wonderful performance about a court witch trial, then head downstairs to see a replica of the old witch dungeons! For the elderly, bring coats and scarves, it is cold downstairs because it isn't heated. The replica is very accurate and nice to see. Would... More

We were looking for something to do with the kids in Salem. The kids were excited to learn about witches, even the ones that were falsely accused of being a witch. There were so many witch museums, and stores that it was a bit overwhelming. We opted for the witch's dungeon. It was fun and informative for my 10 year... More

What a waste of money! Like the related tourist traps (The Witch Museum and the Pirates Museum) just a crass attempt to take as much money as possible and return as little as conceivable. Really shameful for such a lovely city as Salem to house such eyesores! Rather like a turd in a punch bowl.

The staff did a wonderful job with acting one of the trails out. Staff answered any questions you had. A lot of information on the walls to read. A must place to visit. Not scary for kids.

This museum was pretty cool. It started with a live action telling of a witch trial before going into the dungeons for a further tour. Highly recommend.

Go here instead of to the Witch Museum. A live presentation is good and the replicas of the cells for prisoners is a bit too touristy but leaves a permanent impression, especially the coffin cell.
