The museum staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The tours (2) were presented for all audiences. The museum itself was clean, maintained & air conditioned. The history presented in the tours was accurate & done well.

In Boston for the week and was so excited about this little excursion out of the city, but what letdown! Not a museum at all. It was a couple of low budget presentations about the witch trials. Might be fine if you're staying in Salem...More
