Salem Witch Museum reviews
A good place to visit and take pictures outside..no inside photos. We purchased our tickets online so we had easy access to entry. Salem is a good place to visit...spend a day or two. more »
I am a huge fan of keeping things intact. Nothing has really changed here and I like it. Covid safe and sound. Enjoy! more »
Commercialized attraction, minimal amounts of history and a stop at a replica of a ship that closed 2 minutes after we arrived. The guide was knowledgeable and pleasant but there really isn't much to see. The tour covers the lunch period but offers nothing in food or beverage and no opportunity to get anything on your own. I would recommend people get their own transportation and tour at their own pace in the historic areas. I'd skip the museum unless someone wants to see a diorama with narrative and a commercial gift shop.
Very fun but finding the right seat in the theater is hard since the whole show happens around you. I wish they would update it just a tiny bit. Also the fact that it stays semi-lit makes parts like the demon like creature kind of difficult to see. Overall for the price it's worth checking out. Salem is a beautiful little town.
