Good value. Doesn't take long to see. Scott is good.

Seems very authentic. Scott was very knowledgeable and energetic. Goos to sorta study a tad ahead of time if you can. Even if it weren't for Salem events this would still be a... read more

Like the old furnishings; however, would have preferred more of a historic context. It was just a walk through attraction with very little context as to the witch trials.

Seems very authentic. Scott was very knowledgeable and energetic. Goos to sorta study a tad ahead of time if you can. Even if it weren't for Salem events this would still be a pretty cool historic house. On a Sunday in December there is easy parking near by at least in the morning. Walking distance to a lot of other... More

An interesting look round this house. The guy on the door wasn't the most welcoming but another guy inside was chatting animatedly to some other guests and happily imparting knowledge about the house and it's inhabitants.

I noticed that another reviewer said that the phone message said this place was open, yet when they got there it was closed. We had the opposite issue. We had called ahead of time and the phone message said that it would be closed when we would be there. But once we got to town, we noticed that it was... More

It only takes about 20 minutes to go through the house, but it's well worth the visit. It was interesting to see how people lived in that time period. It was owned by by one of the judges from the Salem witch trial, which added to my curiosity.

Lovely building with lots of history. The self guided tour is interesting however there is not very much light to read the placards. The price is a bit steep as well for what you get.

400 year old homes?! Who doesn't want to see the inside of them? This one has its story, but the structure and architectural stories are fascinating and beautiful!

We went after they were 'closed for the season" but still open to the public. All areas of the home had sufficient quantities of written material to clearly define the room, contents, activity, etc. I feel this home would best be toured with a guide because by the time I'm finished reading the literature hanging on the walls, I feel...
