  • I thought it was cool. I was there with a 5 year old. I wasn't looking for a dissertation. I think people are being kind of hard on a simple attraction. People want to insult as much as they can but we know where they come from I took a vacation to get away from them. I thought Salem was a nice little town. Of course everybody's entitled to their own opinion but the witch History Museum was a fun little time out.
  • Go, it's worth it. Very cheesy and the statues/mannequins/whatever you call those are hilarious. The tour guide is great, she gets into character but not too much that you get annoyed by it. It's a quick tour but gives you the history of the area. Note, it's very dark when you go down to the tour.
  • This place deserves all the awards. Premium old school animatrontics at their best!
  • Pretty cool museum . We had the opportunity for some behind the scenes looks at items not on display and had wonderful stories told to us. Staff went out of their way to answer our questions and very thankful for the extra touches they gave us on the exhibits and narratives
  • This museum is nice but outdated. Some of the mannequins are offensive and they don't even realize it.
