After we were in a few Museums in Salem, we decided to go to the Witch Dungeon Museum. We entered a Hall that looked like a Theater. After a few Minutes the Show started. The Actors were really good and you could hear and see...More

This was my first time seeing this performance but my Aunt and sister saw it before. It was very informative. The performance wasn't too long. The guide was very nice.

Worth a visit if you're in Salem and interested in witches. The first part is a reenactment of the witch trial, but with the heater going in the auditorium, it was very hard to hear what the actors were saying, but the bits I did...More

A great place to visit. t tries to dismiss the rubbish of the Salem with trials but to give you a true history of the events that led to the trials and the aftermath. Well worth the visit.

I am glad that I stopped in the tourist spot. It was entertaining but didn't seem like there was much put into the experience. They re-enacted the Witch Trial. Short and vague with only two people and dummy props for the other characters. The dungeon...More

Had to go in to visit some witches....reasonable entry fee and was in the neighborhood so we stopped in for a tour. Thought it would be cheesy but ended up learning some facts! Gift shop was big and bought some stuff for the grands.

Great Tour! Nice spooky old building. The show is a real person reenactment, just enough to get the story out. The basement is wonderful. Has mannequins in cells as you walk around & the guide tells about them. For $9 (Senior Rate) it is a...More

Just wing it! Everyone who comes to Salem is looking for a different experience...I agree with nosae17 response but sounds like he's more of a history buff than "witch related". Witch trials were only 6 months time out of... More
