I'm not a huge horror fan, but visited with a friend and thoroughly enjoyed it. A great walk through the history of horror, with some interesting facts. It was fun wandering through and feeling like something might surprise us! Keep up the good work.

Spooky! I kept expecting one of the figures to jump out at me! A journey back in time remembering all those Vincent Price movies I had seen as a child, and also many I saw as an adult. Made me long to see many of them again! The museum was small, but packed with signed photos, wax figures that were... More

I've visited this place twice, the owner is really cool and runs a excellent museum. Last time we were there we got to meet Eddie Munster! Well worth the price. Will visit again.

This was our 3rd trip to Salem, and every time we visit this attraction. I've reviewed it before (very positive of course), but when I got home and saw that there were "people" miserable enough to rate it with one star I had to chime in! Count Orlok's is exactly as described, but even better than you can imagine! James... More

Stopped by this interesting gallery, as it was a block away from our hotel. The figures are very well done in their settings, and it was quite spooky, as we were alone when we went in! They had plaques with info each one. Glad that none of the figures moved, as I probably would have been too scared otherwise!! A... More

This was a really fun museum walk through. Great information about horror movies even for those who may not be into horror it's interesting to see life size models of famous horror movie characters. I especially like that you get to go at your own pace through it. A little sad that we couldn't take pictures though because there are... More

If you are a horror movie fan, you CANNOT MISS THIS! The statues are true to scale, and in their best roles & at their creepiest. Nothing jumps out at you, write ups are great, no hurry to move through the exhibits...enjoy and admire the figures & settings. Very knowledgeable & friendly folks running the attraction. We went twice because... More

I didn't really know what to expect, but I learned quite a lot about horror movies. Although I am not a horror movie expert, so there was a lot of room to learn something new.

One of the first places we went to when we arrived. Many of the exhibits were from the very early days of horror films, and were cool to read about. You really need to take the time to read about each exhibit because otherwise your experience will seem very short. I was hoping for more current movie villians , but... More

Loved this place! My husband and I were the only people in the gallery when we were there. I think that added to the creepiness. It was so awesome with many reproductions of characters and scenes from many sci-fi and horror movies. Quality was extremely high and it was lots of fun to walk through. I swear that Jack Nicholson... More
