Was ok

The reenactment part wasn't to bad but expected more. The dungeon had some props, just wasn't what I thought it would be.

The actress did a great job of bringing the scene to life. The play made you feel like you were sitting in the courtroom. I found it a great way to learn about the history.

It was a good show that the actors put on and loved to read all the little history signs in the hall. The dungeon was very well don't. Gives you a very good idea of what the poor people had to endure :(

We had no idea which tours to do and decided this was going to be our first (they offer buy all 3 tours for discounted price). The staff were helpful and light hearted when we entered the building. The tour itself involves a small play, followed by a trip to the dungeon (not the real dungeons) with wax figures depicting... More

This is a very nice place to see because the tell you so much at each section in the downstairs but first they have a play which is good for you to go through and they have boards up around the room enjoy and keep learning

If you already know about the Salem Witch Trials, go to a Bewitched Tour. This Museum started off with a very badly acted play of one of the witch trials, itself. Then we went in a tour of what the dungeons would have been like. That part of the tour was very neat/educational. This would be a great starting point... More

Our visit here opened with attending a witch trial! Well done, this live presentation was emotional. The trial was followed by a dungeon recreated to show you what the accused "witches" experienced. This was most informative and worth the visit.

Me and my wife were celebrating our 1-year anniversary and chose to come to Salem/Boston. We got the combo pack, but went to the dungeon first. The skit and information was very informative and we actually learned information that we never knew despite being interested in the witch trials for a long time. No this is not a broadway show,...

Live re-creation of salem witch trial, then down to the dungeon with tour guide for some "history and facts" regarding witch accusations and trials. Interesting and entertaining but wouldn't need to do it again if visiting Salem.
