We were hoping for more information about the witch trials, but the museum was focused on the everyday lives of the original occupants, which was rather dry. It only took about 15 mins to go round the museum, so not great value for money. Perfectly pleasant, but not a 'must do'.

Only house still existing with ties to Salem witch trials, very informative and not expensive. Interesting to see artifacts from that time period.

Place this house tour on your Salem "to-do" list - it is a must-see. This very old house was purchased by John Corwin in 1675, and the architecture and fireplaces are amazing. You do a self-guided tour, but there are very knowledgable guides available to explain 17th century Salem, and answer your all of your questions. Don't miss it!

I'm a history teacher and historian, and I would advise you NOT to waste your money on the Witch House. It's a self guided tour of about five rooms with little information. There's also little to no information about the witch trials. It's mostly random facts about life in the 1600's. I've been to MANY historical sites and museums, and... More

I enjoyed this house. My kids enjoyed seeing how they lived in 1690's. It made they realize how greatful they are to have mattresses and tvs. Lol

Self-guided tour that offered a AAA discount for the asking. Plenty of reading to take in all the period activities. It had A/C!

This was my first visit, and I have to say that it was very informative and interesting to see what life would be like back then. All the artifacts were pretty interesting, and one of the employees was very knowledgeable and willing to share her information with us!
