  • I originally went here because we were looking around for the sites they used for the hocus pocus movie, which I believe this area was used for the opening scene. It was closed when we got there but w...  more »
  • Hard to see what it looks like at night, so can’t really comment on the authenticity of the village. The inside of the houses was very authentic and cool. The stories were good and the readers really ...  more »

  • Don't even waste your money. First none of the employees knew when exactly they opened. Then they opened and the guy informs us that there is no charge just a 3$ donation. Okay seems cool except when you walk in try to use the only bathroom which is a porta potty and it looked liked it should have been emptied months and months ago. Obsolutly disguisting. Then we learn that none of the employees showed up so there was no tour. The village was not up kept and there was trash everywhere! Hard to feel in the moment with Mountain Dew cans. Also no fact cards or people dressed up to explain. Especially since they used this village for hocus pocus they could use so many of these aspects to make a great area instead it's a dump.
  • This is an example of when government and dumb old people come together to scam the public. Don't bother.
  • 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.
