For about $15 per person expected more than sitting on benches in a large room for 15-20 minutes looking at lighted room settings with a taped commentary. Have seen more on TV on NatGeo and Discovery. The room next door had some interesting glass showcases about the witchcraft story and then a large gift shop. Struck me as a big... More

I have a very high tolerance for kitch and quirk, but this was truly horrible. From the moment we bought our tickets on, we were treated rudely, and led through a museum that I probably could have created in my apartment with minimal effort and a single trip to Goodwill. The exhibits posters looked like someone's 6th grade science fair... More

There is a good selection of books and other items. Ther readers, Terry (Stone Lady) and Therese are ethical and demonstrate sensitivity. However, I am disppointed in the 3 psychic readings that I...

This is the only place of it's kind in Salem. World of Witches not only has a bit of history but represents what Witch Craft and Wicca are today. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. A great place to visit!

This one topped out on our list of "bad/ cheap/ tacky places in Salem". It was completely low budget and gave out erroneous information. The figures were cheap as was the overall atmosphere. This should be free.

The museum looks at real life witches through out history and is worth a gander. The big draw for me was that there are several psychics with different specialties. Rev Don does past life readings, Therese does palm and tarot readings, Terry read stones, and another uses automatic writing to answer your questions. I've never been to a shop that... More

My husband and I visited Salem for our honeymoon and The World of Witches Museum was one of our favorite places to go. Rev. Don and Katrina were so welcoming and extreamely friendly. Katrina has a vast knowledge of everything they sell in the shop and in the museum. She was a very charismatic tour guide. We can't wait to... More
