Owner description: Gallows Hill is an incredible mix of special effects, live performance, costumes, story-telling, diversions, exhilarating surprises and jump scares blended with historical facts about the WITCH TRIALS, ghosts and local legends. An attraction not to be missed. Our lobby is now a mini-museum, with wall portraits come to life, with information on Salem witchcraft history and mythology. You also find Sheriff Corwin, the infamous sheriff of the witch trials, and an old witch from the mythological world of witchcraft. Perfect for picture taking! Gallows Hill makes for a complete interactive and memorable experience that returning visitors continue to see year after year! Open for group tours from March to Mid November. Currently open to the public Only in October.

“Humorous and Informative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012

Every year we bring all our employees on a company outing and this year it was to Salem MA. There was 100+ of us ranging from 21-75 years old and Witches Cottage was our favorite stop. They bring the New England humor to everything they do so the show was very funny, sarcastic and yes they made dozens of our staff scream with fear and even get up on stage. We also learned alot about what happened back in the 1600's because their style of performing made the crowd listen even better. Since our group was so large half of us did their historic walking tour while the others were at the show and then we switched. The walking tour was great too, and that even had sarcastic humor. None of us felt that the show or tour was geared towards children only, we had a blast! They were also very accomodating as we went there when they were not even generally open and prices are very reasonable.

“School East Coast Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

I was a chaperone on my sons trip to Boston/New York. We had a stop in Salem and the performance at the Withces Cottage was the highlight of the day. I think the adults enjoyed this as much as the kids did. i have to admit that I jumped a few times. It was a very entertaining evening and I would recommend this to anyone going to Salem.

“Great Salem attraction for groups of all ages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

The Witches Cottage is always a part of my Salem itinerary! As a tour coordinator I have to put together a trip that will appeal to all ages. The Witches Cottage is a great attraction because it is entertaining and educational, and makes you jump out of your seat all at the same time. I highly recommend you visit The Witches Cottage on your next trip to Salem, MA!
