  • This should really be a free attraction. Yes, it has a lot of information but the standing and reading and looking at old wax statues left a lot to be desired. Would not return or recommend.  more »
  • This place is in serious need of updating. The figures look like they had seen better days. Very small-I would consider this a waste of money. Of all the places we visited this was my daughter's least...  more »
  • Very basic and could be so much better. Bayou could take pictures but I didn't. There was nothing I wanted a picture of  more »

  • 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 The wax figures are kind of outdated but the info is there on the plaques.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.
  • Went on Halloween 2016 and this is where they had the "Haunted Houses". DO NOT DO THEM!!! Trust me. They were horrible. We went to 2 of them and they let us in right after the first group before us and the "actors" weren't ready for us. Was not scary and it was over in 2 minutes. Please! Listen to me. I wanted my money back. You 'd think Salem would have done a better job. Pure laziness and unprofessional. The tickets were over priced. I've been to school funded haunted houses that did a better job.
