Salem Witch Museum - Review

Salem Witch Museum is an interesting museum in Salem that takes you through what is considered as one of the most horrific and daring events in the history of America. Salem's most visited attraction of Salem Witch Museum comprises of two important sections. First, the visitors will be shown a presentation that is based on the trial documents from the witch trials of 1692. Present with a strong sense of narration and compelling visual experience, the presentation gives you a clear understanding of the witch trials. After the presentation, the visitors will be taken on a live walking tour clearing their doubts on the witchcraft practice and the changing interpretations of the witches. The statue at the front of the museum door is notably of the Founder of Salem - Roger Conant and the museum also contains an in-house store to pick up souvenirs.

  • We got in for the last show which, unfortunately, was just half of the museum. We did get a slight discount though. The show itself was pretty neat. Not what we were expecting from a "museum". It was a cool surprise though. Maybe the second half was more of the museum side. We were hoping the figures were going to move during the show but still fun regardless!

  • entering the presentation you are seated on benches facing forward. The presentation uses the whole perimeter. So you move around on your bench seat. From where we were sitting we could not see the dungeon. After the presentation we asked if we could see it. We were told “no”. The presentation was created in 1972 and has not been updated. It has a twilight zone feel. Not worth $12. Worth $5.

  • I think the museum's specific location and aesthetic architecture make it an enticing visit. However, the overall experience leaves something to be desired. The "tour" is divided into two parts: a theatrical narration and "the evolution of the witch" presentation. The first and most poignant presentation was interesting - especially if you've read the Crucible or if you've studied the history of the Salem witch trials. Yet the seating arrangements within this auditorium are horrible. If you do not get a seat within the center of this room, prepare yourself to miss out on the raised displays which are overhead and obscured from sight. This theater's ambient lighting is intentionally dimmed, so you will not be able to view the wax demonstrations after the historical narrations have ended. The second "tour" is a bit pathetic: it's a corner room with live narration from one of the museum staff. There's no free roam in this museum aside from walking through the gift shop. Depending on the size of your group and designated sticker color, you will either get to experience both presentations from start to finish, or you will be asked to wait in the gift shop until the first group is finished with the conclusion of their "tour." In summation of my trip, it was educational. I enjoyed the wax displays - or what I was able to see of them, and I thought the staff were friendly. Overall, it was an ok experience.

  • I know...everyone told me that's it's Salem's most popular tour....however it is dated. If u like to sit in front of static diaramas then this may be for you. It is difficult to see them since you are surrounded by them and the seating doesn't turn. So you have to turn around and look behind you to follow along. That all being said, the history and story is very interesting

  • Awesome gift shop. Not thrilled by the quality of the museum. The voice-over room could use some updating and redesign. The tour was nice. Not sure why you can't take photos. Unfortunate.
