People tend to check in during these times:
Make sure you sit in the middle for the first part of the show, or you won't really be able to see everything.
don't bother wasting your money.
DON'T DO IT! Unless you enjoy bad sound effects that sound like sexual encounters.
Make sure near Halloween time you get in line early to get your tickets in advance.
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.
Not really a 'museum' at all.
Not really sure why all the negative comments. We really enjoyed it. Very informative . Great history of the town provided. A must do !
It's a two room museum with nothing to see really..!!
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.
Museum is kinda cool.. 1st part is better than the 2nd part of the tour.
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.
It really wasn't worth the $9, but I still enjoyed it.
Very informative. The real story on the history of witches in the United States. The tour takes around 45 minutes.
One word... cheesy.. might b entertaining for kids
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.
Don't waste the money
Not worth the fee, unless you've never seen/read The Crucible. Just gives recorded overview of trials. No artifacts.
Tackier than a black velvet Elvis painting - you HAVE to come here! This kind of spectacular tacky is hard to come by! :D
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.
Cheesy but great for kids
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.
A little cheesy but a lot of fun, relax listen to the story and have a good time
Free if you have an MTA card.
I have never laughed so hard at cheesy wax figures and bad voicing in my life. It was informative, but I couldn't stop laughing at how cheesy it was.
Not worth it.
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
Waste of your money. Hokey and no more information provided than any Salem web site provided.
A bit cheesy for adults but good for kids.
Well that was a waste.
Cheesy, uninformative, short, and not worth the money.
Not worth it! First part was slightly interesting yet poorly voiced, and the second part was very short and boring. I learned nothing I didn't already know.
Good history, a bit cheesy. Wiccans will appreciate them for teaching the truth about the Craft.
Big let down. Not worth the money.
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.
Sit on the floor in the middle for the best view! If that's not possible, go for the right side ;)
Saying this was a waste of time is an understatement.
a must. creeptastic. and educational!
It was interesting but if you've read or seen the crucible, there's no difference but I'm glad I got to go
