Fun time!

Lots of information, and a cool look through items that belong in that era! The house itself is really stunning.

Maybe it's because we are from New England and so kind of used to historical areas but we were not impressed. It'a an old house with some historical contents that are somewhat interesting but I would not pay again to walk around it.

This is the same area I like to visit at night, or during the day. Again I love Salem and any chance I can get to come I take it! Between work, kids, school, sports, and other stuff I get here as much as possible!

A visit that was more of the same. If you visit the Witch Museum, see the film at the Visitor's Center, read the info around town, then this house is just more of the same. Pick one and skip the rest.

This house is the last standing home of the Salem Witch Trials. A judge that impacted the Salem Witch Trials presided in this house. It's not a very impressive house and for close to ten dollars a person, it's not worth it. It's a self tour and my husband and I did it in under 10 minutes. I checked out... More

Great site to visit. We actually enjoyed the fact that we were there in the off season and didn't get an actual tour. We wandered through the house at our leisure and got to take our time with looking at things, reading signs and just taking in the history of it.

This is not a witch house. It is the house where a judge who decided which women were to die lived. The museum/house contains some interesting artifacts but no one who works there knows anything about them - we asked about several. They no longer offer guided tours. To say this was an overpriced rip-off would be an understatement. When... More

It is a cool historical house (the only one left from the time of the Salem Witch Trials), but not worth the $8.50 a person to go through it. We read every sign in every room and briefly discussed a few things while inside and we were still out in less than 20 minutes.

We had a great tour of the house of the seven gables, Salem Wax Museum And Old Salem Village. A wonderful day trip full of history. My family really enjoyed our day.

We had already been to the Paul Revere House a few days earlier so were very dissapointed that they charge more for this so called witch house but provided so much less of an experience. We were out in less than ten minutes and over $20.00 poorer for Two adults and a child ( 8 years old. ) Not worth... More
