Foursquare Tips

  • don't bother wasting your money.
  • Make sure you sit in the middle for the first part of the show, or you won't really be able to see everything.
  • Not really sure why all the negative comments. We really enjoyed it. Very informative . Great history of the town provided. A must do !
  • 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.
  • I want to fill my noggin with knowledge about the famous witch trials, walk the graveyard, and maybe drink some nice hot cider. Fear and cider make a lovely pair. Hotel Reco:
  • Not really a 'museum' at all.
  • It's a two room museum with nothing to see really..!!
  • 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.
  • Pretty much the cheesiest thing in Salem, don't go in expecting a lot of info, but do expect over the top narration and the oldest wax figures on the east coast.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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.
