Being a huge horror movie fan this is definitely one of my favorite things in Salem. A must see for any horror movie fan! These wax figures are on point! I swear they are real! It is small in there and a quick self guided tour. But well worth the price for some awesome figures! Always on my list to... More

This place is awesome if you like wax figures that are replicas of characters from horror films that are enjoyed by many of the young and old.some of the characters you will see here are Dracula, The Wolfman, the Alien queen, and many more including Reagan (Linda Blair) from The Exorcist...

This isn't too terribly long. You can maybe get through in about 15-20 minutes, given that you read all the plaques. It's price is affordable though. Awesome effects and movie monster statues. Right up the alley of any horror film fanatic.

I love wax museums and this is one of the best ones I've ever been to. Very realistic wax figures of famous horror movie monsters. It's only $8 a person and well worth it.

I just recently watched some of the older horror movies so seeing the wax figures was really interesting. The cards explaining what you were seeing and what movie they were from was very informative. The low lighting and short walks and turns of the place kept it spooky and I really enjoyed it. I am definitely interested to see who... More

The Nightmare Gallery is a great place to visit if you're into older horror movies.They have a nice collection of figures and costumes along with information about the movies and actors. We went through in about twenty minutes, but if you want to read every thing, it can take closer to 45 minutes. Definitely worth it for classic horror movie... More

First of all, to buy tickets go on the site and buy the family passes for Nightmare Gallery AND Chambers of Terror. You'll save money and do 2 attractions instead of one. As for the Nightmare Gallery, it was ok but no more (not a tourist trap but close). The Chambers of Terror was much better! :-)
