  • This is a nice memorial to the women and men who were so senselessly murdered by group hysteria in our nation's earliest history. It should be a cautionary tale about the dangers of group-think.  more »

  • Salem Historical Tours held this tour. This company offers 5 tours: Salem 101:General History Tour, Grave Matters Cemetery Tour, Midday Ghost Tour, 1692 Witchcraft Walk and Haunted Footsteps Ghost Tour. Each one right after the other - about half hr apart. My boyfriend and I participated in 3 tours - Grave Matters Cemetery Tour & Midday Ghost Tour. I must say our tour guides Nick and Bob were both great and extremely accommodating. I actually booked the tours for the wrong date and they were super nice and allowed us to continue on w\ our tour, the day we were there. We learned so much and I can only imagine how fun Salem must be during October. Every tour spoke about something different and during the tour, they allowed us to take our time to take pictures and answered any questions the group had. Please take a tour w\ this company, they're informative, funny and most importantly, the information they relay is not repetitive so you're learning something different on every tour.
  • A peaceful place to reflect upon tragedy and how we can act to honor the people who died as a result of reactive communal fear. Please walk through with respect and deference to the tragedy.
  • Missed the movie, wish a more thorough look at the architecture of second church was avail.
  • A little dated. Staff were not knowledgeable. Typical "tourist" attraction
  • It rained the day we visited which made it even gloomier. Worth the trip on a rainy day.
