Highly enjoyed my (to short of a) visit here. On my list of places to return to some day. Have an open mind and learn about the history.

As someone who likes cheesy decor this town has always been a bevy of wonders.I have been traveling to this town for many years and to be honest, I enjoyed the somber strange energy of the town.It has been watered down and cheepened by the tourist industry. True, there are more shops and restaurants, but at what cost?

Our first visit there and the town was quaint and friendly. The shops were great and all the different "museums" were great. Don't miss the town square. There is a statue dedicated to Samantha and Bewitched!

I was really wanting to learn the history of the area. We did learn some things but it was just cheesy.

Went on Halloween night. The witches and goblins were out in full force! The costumes were fun and inventive and everyone had a great time. No crazy drunks or fighting which can happen when you have 100,000 people all in one place. Unfortunately it was so crowded we weren't able to see the witches museum which is why we went... More

Loads of people dressed up as witches (mostly tourists) wandering around. Lots of shops containing witch-type stuff. We visited the witch museum, dungeons, and pirate museum, for which we got a discount ticket for the 3 attractions. Good value, but by the time we had done all three we had done enough. There were loads more things there, but a... More

It was a good history lesson, but the tour was not very long. I'm glad I did not pay more for the ticket then I did. The attraction seemed like it needed a little up keep as well.

This is a very quaint and nice town. They have a lime on the sidewalk your follow to all the different attractions. I personally did the Salem Witch Museum then took in the historical significance of Salem. I'd suggest going to the Salem information centre first as they are run by park rangers and will explain each attraction in Salem... More
