I'm a Massachusetts native who has visited Salem, MA, countless times. It was only yesterday that I decided to visit the Nightmare Gallery with some family. Our visit to the gallery was wonderful at $6-8 per person! No lines, pleasant staff, and fantastic artwork! We were one of only two groups in the museum at the time and really enjoyed... More

This was honestly the first wax museum I had ever visited. Thanks to this museum, it won't be the last. I went during October and during the evening they open the wax museum up as a haunted house. Then during the day they open it up as the wax museum, the price is reasonable and the experience is wonderful. If... More

Absolutely one of THE best wax museums that I have ever visited! The black lights and the detail in the wax figures made it look so real. They have everything from Regan in the Exorcist, to Johnny in the Shining, to the old classics, Phantom of the Opera, Dracula, and Wolfman to name a few. Hands down the best part... More

I did a lot for my first time in Salem. But by far the Nightmare Gallery was my top favorite! Pretty much across from Salem Beer Works, so you can knock out two most go places! Food, beer and amazing tribute to the best genre ever! Horror Film! Was a small place, but so much to see! Definitley read all... More

Great museum. Nicely done - great for the horror film enthusiast. Quick trip through. VERY willing to help if you have any questions. If you're expecting a long trip through, you're not going to get one. It's a quick trip through if you have young kids. I enjoyed the displays immensely.

Our family went to Salem over the 4th of July weekend and my daughter and her room-mate found Count Orlok's and wanted to visit. Although it is not a very big museum, it is packed full of some of the most realistic horror creatures I have seen. The werewolf actually had sweat on it and looked like it was coming... More

This was my second time doing this exhibit, and it was just as good as the first. I love the creepy vibe in this place, and the was figures are amazingly realistic. Love how they give you background info into the movies as well. Reasonably priced as well.

We came to Salem after seeing Count Orlok's on a horror host show. It was the greatest! We could have spent hours there!

So fun and interesting!!! The atmosphere is great and the Haunted portion later in the day is a BLAST! The owner is a total sweetheart and very entertaining.

Loved Count Orlok's!! Seeing all the horror movie creatures up close and personal was great! There is also information about each one - the movie & who played creature. The creatures do not move - it is a museum but it might be a but scary for young ones. If you are a horror movie lover, you should stop here... More
