This was our meeting place for a tour. A few homeless people outside of it. We didn’t go in but was cool to see one of the buildings from the Hocus Pocus movie.

The history behind this building, as well as the fact that it is featured in Hocus Pocus, make it a great photo opportunity. We did not enter the building, but we did enjoy learning the history of it from our tour guide.

This was a must-see on our visit to salem and did draw quite a crowd, as it’s where the famous party spot in hocus pocus was filmed, where Bette Midler sang “I put a spell on you”. I can only imagine how busy it must get in Halloween season.

It’s a beautiful building & well preserved. It’s in the centre of the main high street so easy enough to find, but it isn’t signposted so keep your eyes peele

Halloween in Salem was everything childhood-me dreamed it would be and more! We trick-or-treated at Dani/Max’s and Allison’s house (from Hocus Pocus), mingled with the street performers, listened to a bunch of great live music, and got to see some of the coolest costumes of all time! Be sure to take your pic outside of the Old Town Hall recreating Bette Midler's fabulous exit!

This is the Halloween party spot they used for Hocus pocus the movie. When Bette & the girls sing I put a spell on you! Cool to see. Right in town.

We saw this during our Ghost Tour & it was great, both my sisters and myself caught pictures of something in the upstairs windows. We went back the next day to use the sensory deprivation room. The two workers were so loud, it was a waste of time. All I could hear was them talking super loud.

Even though we didn't go in, I recognized this building from Hocus Pocus. I never knew all the history it held. Beautiful architecture and in the middle of town.

We weren’t able to enter the building the day we were in Salem, but it was really cool to be able to see this site. It’s so cool that they also used this building in Hocus Pocus

Didn't go in; but the place is on all the walking tours as having real historical value. Can also relax there and take photos!
