    Make sure you sit in the middle for the first part of the show, or you won't really be able to see everything.

    This is not the witch museum you were hoping for; virtually no historical accuracy and no sense of the significance of the trials. I'm sure there's something better in Salem, but we didn't find it.

    There is nothing to see, the whole museum is made of 2 rooms. It was "house of horror in an amusement park" cheesy. I already knew more about the Salem witch trials than what they present.

    This place is the worst. Not entertaining or informative. No fun, not even as kitsch. No room for ironic enjoyment. Your lowest expectations still won't be met.

    Most fail to realize this stands as a reminder that our Freedoms of Speech and Religion continue to be under attack. Nothing about that is hokey.

    The Salem Witch Museum brings you back to Salem in 1692. Experience the drama of history in life-size stage sets, figures, lighting and a stirring narration.

    OK tour. Was hoping for a bit more but its all good. Humorous that $ is being made on an event were people weren't witches. Now its the home of 800+ Wiccans.

    Not worth the fee, unless you've never seen/read The Crucible. Just gives recorded overview of trials. No artifacts.

    don't sit on the edge for the first part of the presentation because you won't be able to see half of the show.

    Not really a museum. No artifacts or pictures from those days. It's more of a history of the trials & kind of cheesy. Informative, but nothing I couldn't have researched on my own.

    This is unfortunately a waste of time and money. The technology is from 50 years ago and restates what you remember from The Crucible. Seek out something with better information.

    First part remains classic in a kitchy presentation a la Disney's Hall of Presidents. Second part is simplistic Public Service announcement about Wicca . . . Disappointing.

    Tours are given of the museum with exhibits and a guide explaining the witch trials and historical events of years ago. It can be extremely crowded around Halloween. Off season visits may be more fun

    I usually don't care for the tips people leave because I like to see for myself, however it's definitely not worth $9. Just a bunch of wax figures in a room and a recording about the trials.
