The lines and wait time for this place or ridiculous and I don’t understand why. The “show” is sub-core and it’s kind of a joke how cheaply the whole thing is set up. If you want to learn about the history, find one of the...More

The Salem Witch Museum was not exactly what we expected. We thought there would be artifacts from the dark period of witch persecution. Instead we entered a large room surrounded by life sized dioramas. As the show began, each diorama was lit and a voice...More

Very informative. Tells the real history of this terrible part of history. Highly recommend starting your trip to Salem here, but if visiting in October you need to go early to get your tickets.

I found it to be very informative about the witch trials. Makes you sit back and think about what folks went through. This is an attraction that I would recommend.

Yes. The big room has stairs to access but you can come in through another door that has a ramp.

There is no dedicated parking for the museum. We found parking about a block or two away. And the walk was enjoyable.
