This museum was pretty cool. It started with a live action telling of a witch trial before going into the dungeons for a further tour. Highly recommend.

Go here instead of to the Witch Museum. A live presentation is good and the replicas of the cells for prisoners is a bit too touristy but leaves a permanent impression, especially the coffin cell.

We learned a lot from this walk through, they have a play at the beginning to set the stage for everything. They have a beam from the original dungeon as well.

This event does not require a lot of time or money. The group show is a mix of live action tour and animatronics. Young kids would probably like it better than teenagers and adults.

The tour provided an interesting background to the witch trials. I would have to say the scenes with the mannequins were a bit disturbing looking. Other than that if you are going to get some historical perspective then it's not too bad.

There were only 2 of us there on a weekday in November but they put on the show all the same, and we got a private tour through the dungeon. We aware there are stairs (my mom has bad knees), not sure if an elevator is available but I doubt it. The show was good and informative and the tour... More

I'm writing this as a public service to others: this museum sucks. It is vastly overpriced for what you get and should be avoided at all costs. Perhaps earlier positive reviewers were friends stacking the deck, but I am not. Avoid this. The theatrical performance is mildly interesting and is followed by a wildly uninspired "dungeon" tour. It's very short.... More

Definitely go see this to attach more meaning to the history you will undoubtedly hear at other attractions. I enjoyed it and I paid the $19 for the 3 connected museums.

Did not expect the performance to be as interesting but it was. Not knowing too many details of the trials I can say I learned some things. The tour part of the jail was interesting and put it in perspective of how harsh the jail was for the accused.
