This is an hour long presentation to learn a bit about the witch trials and how witch culture has evolved. It’s in an old church and is fairly entertaining. Some people may find it offensive. My recommendation is to stay open minded and take it...More

First time in Salem. This was the first thing my sister and I did. We loved it. Although not a traditional museum it is done well. Two short shows. Great for all ages.

Totally Commercial Shows. The shop is total touristy with worthless stuff. Just good for clicking pictures from the outside.

Interesting presentation with wax figures in dark hall and recorded narration. Whole thing lasts less than 30 minutes. For the $12 ticket price, seems a bit too much.

About 40 minutes then a walk through the rest of the exhibits. An hour and a half should see you in and out. I found it interesting but each to their own.
