We stopped at Salem on the way from Marblehead to Lexington and Concord. We wanted to avoid all of the witch stuff and found this Museum which encompasses much of the historic Salem waterfront. The stories of the history are very interesting although the collection of artifacts and such seemed limited.

We enjoyed our visit. The biggest problem we had was with a handicapped person. The sidewalks were horrible. It was very difficult pushing a wheelchair around. Because of that we will not be returning till they are fixed

A lovely walk down to the lighthouse that is filled with wildflowers. They have adirondack chairs to relax in to enjoy the view too!

Unfortunately, the ship was closed the day we were in Salem. But, extremely well maintained and there are a lot of historical markers around the ship that give you information about it.

We love visiting National Park Service sites. Thus one is simple, well organized and we enjoyed the walk from the main Visitor Center down to the ocean and the replica ship. Great interpretation on signs about the houses and business. Learned a lot about some things I did not know. A very important part of American history commercially.
