The two museums (the witch history and the dungeon museum) were a combo deal. I went to the Witch History Museum and the girl talked me into getting a combo deal for the Witch Dungeons as well, I’m so glad I did! The museum itself...More

I don't know if this is worth the price of admission, but the guide was very animated and told the story of the witch trial period very well as we navigated through the various displays. The animatronics were amusing in their clumsiness, but were otherwise...More

Really, lots of sitting and others pushing buttons. A guided tour, the guide pushes the buttons and you listen. My kids thought it was okay. Takes about 1 hour to complete the tour.

I've been twice in Salem and this was my favorite witch history museum. It's really entertaining and they have scenes that talk with lights and sound effects. The guide was very knowledgable and she made it fun. The other places weren't that good.

This was enjoyable! I liked the walk through and the exhibits were moody and atmospheric. I liked that it was informative and gave a good overview of the trials and the history. Great place to get the presents for family!

The Witch History Museum is an informative walk through the past. Basic info was recounted the same as in other places; however, there were a few details that had a little different spin on them. All in all, worth the time and money.

Our guide through this museum was very knowledgeable and the stories were interesting. The mannequins were a little creepy, but it was neat to go through an exhibit instead of just looking at it. I did not regret stopping here.

We visited the Witch History Museum on Essex immediately following our venture to the Witch Dungeon Museum. At the previous site, we enjoyed live acting, a substantial bona fide artifact from the 17th century, and an extremely knowledgeable tour guide. That is not what you...More
