It was okay and had info I didn’t know about. The only down side was that the tour guide was obviously bored and really didn’t seem like he wanted to be there. If the tours are done by volunteers bless them, but this place needs...More

Ok, so maybe a bit hokey, but it was fun. The guide thought himself quite the card but he did have great info.

This little tour was immensely informative. We enjoyed it and the kids got a big kick out of it. The hung pirates kind of made our six year old cry but not for long.

The Tour Guide, Bobby, was excellent. However, the mustiness of this museum made it hard to breathe for anyone with allergies or other health issues. That said, it was an interesting tour.

We bought the three-museum pass that included this, the Witch History Museum, and the Witch Dungeon Museum, and this one was definitely a highlight. Like a lot of the museums in Salem, it is a guided tour through life-sized vignettes with mannequins, so it’s a...More
