    I wanted to check this place out because I had read this was the place used as Binx's village in Hocus Pocus. Sadly, it was closed and a lot of water was in it, but it was still pretty cool to see it ...  more »

    If you do "The Witch House" tour, ask for the "Salem Pioneer Village" tour, you will get village tour for free. When we did this tour, our tour guide was the only worker there. He did a fantastic job giving the history, but I thought there would have been much more going on. This is not the really village, this was built in the 1930 to show the history of the area. I still recommend stopping by and doing the tour.

    We did an evening storytelling tour here and it was awesome. All the storytellers were great, but there was one woman in particular that really stood out. My wife and her brother came back later in the evening to do the haunted house-like tour they offer, but they said it was too dark to see most of it.

    Excellent. Both staff members were very knowledgeable and provided an entertaining tour full of a lot of history. So worth going there.

    A must see, if you can find it open. It's always hit or miss for us. Great for the history buff or to see how our pioneer ancestors lived .

    This is a must do on your Salem visit. The tour guide was amazing and informative. If you like Hocus Pocus this was location they filmed the first scene with Thackery Binx.
