We chose this museum based on other reviews, and were not disappointed. The trial reenactment was well done, and the dungeon recreation provides a glimpse as to what it was like for those accused.

This museum is a walking tour through the dark time of the Salem trials. It is super informative. My husband and I were blown away by the beam relic that is housed in this facility!

For whatever reason, the style of a museum being composed entirely of mannequins with a person telling you stories is how most of Salem does museums.This one is slightly unique in that it starts off with a show of 2 women among the mannequins re-enacting...More

I purchased the combo pack for the three sights. Truthfully if you are just here to see some cool things just visit one of the three. They are all very similar. If you are die hard into witches then it is worth visiting all three.

I would say for that age group, the witch history museum. They both have mannequins but I think smaller children would better enjoy the Witch History Museum.
