  • I'm not really a huge fan of wax museums in general and this one, apart from one thing I'll mention later, didn't really wow me. It's thematically sound and the informational panels are well-written a...  more »
  • $9 per person is too much for this museum. It's basically one room with some very old wax figures and some of them had broken fingers and very dusty clothes. It will take you about 5-10 minutes to go ...  more »
  • Decided to check this out. Was only $9. Ummmm, nope. Not worth paying. It was a joke. The "wax" figures are like 40 years old. They are so outdated. It was a large room with most of the space unoccupi...  more »

  • Very interesting. Definitely need to go during the off season. The figures could do with some updating but the staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable.
  • If you like to read history instead of listening to it. Decent museum took us about 10 minutes to get through it. The wax figures are kind of outdated but the info is there on the plaques. Got to do some carcoal rubbings at the end which was cool but not worth a $9 admission....maybe a $5.
  • The history behind Salem and why it became such an historical town was Amazing. To learn how thing happened was truly inspiring. Can't wait until Halloween 2017.
  • It is not like a high quilty wax museam it is about the history of salem massachusetts
  • I don't think I would spend the money to go here again. It was pretty informative but very, very small and awfully short. I had hoped for something a little more interesting. Only took us 8-10 minutes to get through the whole thing. The haunted house and gift shop downstairs were pretty nice, though.
