Awesome tour! Our guide knew his information. Worth the money. Tours are always better at night. I never knew why I see people take the daytime tours. They aren't as spooky.

The Voodoo, Vampires, & Ghost tour of Salem, Massachusetts hosted through SpellBound Tours was Top-notch, A+, and Very well done! The Best, Most haunted sites were visited. The Emcee, Mike, was Friendly, Wise, and ready to share valuable insight and interpretation to dozens of difficult questions. With each different stop on the Spellbound tour you gain insight to yet another... More

This is just a few rooms with a few things on bookshelves. The exhibits are not cohesive and the information is basic. Very overpriced for what you get. The worst part is that they try to pass somethings off as the real thing, but they aren't.

We decided to try the Spellbound Museum because I have been to Salem a few times and this place was new to me. The brochure made it seem mysterious and interesting. Everything in that place was FAKE. They were sort of Halloween decorations. A plastic hand in a jar. A fake Fiji mermaid in a 10 gallon tank. A fake... More

I am giving this one star because I am forced to give it something. It doesn' t even deserve that. We were greeted by a rude woman who gave major attitude for us asking a simple question. My husband and I bought tickets to the "ghostly theatre" It sounded really good from the brochure we got. We gave it a... More

This is a very tiny museum. When we first arrived my husband had a video camera in his hand, from taping outside and our hostess' first comment was,"Put that camera away, no pictures or taping, do you see the sign?" He had just walked in the door and wasn't planning on taping and hadn't had a chance to see the... More

This was a different type of museum. I found the exhibits quite interesting. It is a bit small and maybe a little over priced. The description in brochures are accurate.

Finnaly something that isn't just a rehash of the same tired old "witch hysteria" topics in Salem. Yes, the witch hysteria was a terrible event. Yes, it is important to remember that prejudice and greed are things to be avoided, and persecution of the innocent should never be tolerated. But come on... how many different ways can the exact same... More
