  • Looking for a place to start and get some history behind the witch trials and basics on Salem, perfect place to start. Really good information, tour guides are knowledgeable, and period costumes worn.  more »

  • Dark, dusty place with a dour tour guide makes for a nothing-to-write-about experience. Good information about the witch trials and local area elevates it to meh. An animated, interested guide who guides people to stand.such that all in the group can see the performance, and better lighting (I understand it is meant to be dark with light on the performance, but stumble in the dark isn't good) would make this a place definitely worth seeing. Not worth the $10 guided tour fee.
  • Pretty good. We had a large group during our tour so we had to bunch in pretty tight to see the displays. Pretty similar to the other witch museum related tours in the area.
  • You get a little history and a little insight into a crazy time. The tour itself is quick but worth it.
  • I found it cool, until we come to the part of the slave "Candy." If she's from Barbados, why does she sound like a Southern stereotype? Also, her lips are bright red. It was embarrassing.
  • I was not impressed. The enterence is about 10$ . Same story and personages that were seen at Whitch Museum. The figures for my opinion is not realistik enogh, low qulity. No dpedual effectd or real historycl exhebits.
