The Witch House, Salem Reviews - Write a Review
This is a neat little stop in Salem. There is a lot to see and a lot of very interesting artifacts. As far as interactivity goes it's not, this is simply a period house with items and placards however don't let that dissuade you it is very interesting to see how daily life was lived and there is a lot of very interesting material here. Expect to spend a bit of time here as it seems that the flow of people through here is self-organizing and you are pretty much at the same Pace that you would be at a mini golf course of waiting for the next group to clear, so if you're expecting to read every placard then I suggest going when it's not terribly busy.
Very well acted trial. Also enjoyed the preface to the act which sets the scene and educates the audience about the facts. Very well done.
The house is a go at your own pace kind of place. There is plenty to read and learn, lots of interesting facts.. look for the skull moss!
Loved the wide plank flooring and being able to walk through a piece of our history...happy the home survived all this tome and is still cared for too.
Really nice place. We went at 11 am and it was not really crowded wich was nice. Nice short self-guided tour.
