  • Price is high for something so quick. You can walk through on your own, without a guide. It's set up in a u shape. It's seems you are in and out very quickly, should only charge 5 dollars per person, ...  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 The wax figures are kind of outdated but the info is there on the plaques.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.

Where to stay in Salem

There are a number of accommodations within walking distance of downtown, enabling you to make the most of Salem’s nightlife and dining options. Those who want a room rich with character should look to the outskirts of the city. There you can find a number of charming bed and breakfasts, several of which are in restored century-old homes. A house or apartment rental is ideal if you're on vacation for a longer period of time.
