Paid for 3 attractions in October. And the wax figures were pretty interesting..very well detail. I honestly was expecting some half a** figures but they were to my surprise pretty good. You could probably finish this museum in 8 minutes if your just looking and quickly reading the card info.

I paid for three attractions and this was one of the attractions. It gave a brief history of Salem on plaques and had wax figures to view. The wax figures were kind of creepy, however, it was an okay museum to explore. It took about 10 minutes to go through with reading all the information. The girl checking me in was on her cellphone and looked bored.

This museum was horrible. Literally one room full of wax figures in "scenes" with plaques to read about them. So small and we paid almost $38 for 2 adults and a ten year old. I soooo wish I had thought to check the reviews before going. Don't bother. There are so many different museums in Salem, choose another. And the girl checking us in couldnt care less either. Such a waste of money!

$12 per person got us a walk through a tiny wax museum we could've finished in 2 minutes. Definitely not worth your time in my opinion.

I paid over fifty dollars for two people for a tour of the wax museum, the “haunted house” and an audio tour that they say is a haunted house on the weekends. It was definitely not worth the money. All three places are very small and we left disappointed. The wax museum in my opinion had the most factual information and was the most interesting. If you’re from out of town visiting Salem like us because it’s Halloween, be careful how you spend your money and read the reviews unlike us before you go.

Kind of boring wax museum. And small.
Kind of good gift shop.
Nice that the bathroom was clean and useable.

This place is a complete waste of time and money. The seafarers portion consisted of about 3-4 displays, and the witch exhibits provide the same information you get everywhere else, with no interaction at all: read the sign and look at the display. Skip this one when in Salem.

This is a very small wax museum that tries to cover Salem from the witch trials to their maritime history. For a space this small it was okay but we were in and out in 15 minutes and read everything there. Some of the exhibits had good lighting that allowed you to get good pictures but they still had some that were either too dark for pictures or had a strange green or blue light on them that also affected the pictures.

They had a sample jail cell you could walk into to get the feel of how the women and men accused of being a witch were treated but there were 3 kids playing around inside of it and we never did get inside (we didn't see the parents anywhere).

Don’t be misled, it’s a very interesting little place. Lots of great information, the kind of information that stays with you and makes you want to know more. Excellent for a quick history lesson about Salem.

This collection of attractions was absolutely horrible. Frankenstein's Castle and the other haunted house attraction were basically identical and only last about 60-90 seconds. 3 characters jump out at you in each one...whoopie! Wax museum was okay at best. The worst part...the "Candlelit Tour" This tour takes you through a few blocks of town, providing a little history but in our case the tour guide simply disappeared and another worker from the tour didn't know where the guy went and he didn't know the route of the tour. We gave up trying to find the guide after about 10 minutes. About 20 people were left high and dry from tour. Don't waste your time and money.
