This place was so awesome! As a huge horror fan I found myself grinning from ear to ear the entire time. The museum is filled with gorgeous figures and life casts of legends like Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, and Vincent Price. Totally worth the money and the best thing to do in Salem honestly.

If you love horror movies, this is the place to go. With lifelike recreations of both famous and cult classic horror characters, while not long in duration the tour is worth the price if you love horror

My family is huge on monster movies and we were so happy we hit this place. Excellent replicas and memorabilia, creepy music and atmosphere. It's a small museum but it was worth it. Very professional, great staff. I read a lot of reviews that photos were not allowed and it is understandable. The experience should be lived with no previous... More

The displays in here were very lifelike. The eyes looked real. It's a short walk through but if you take your time it's worth it. Would not recommend taking small children in here! Nothing jumps out but the figures are pretty scary for kids

I was really looking forward to this gallery as my friends and I love horror films. I was happy to learn it had been transformed into a scare house with live actors. We only queued for half hour, which on Halloween was a blessing. It was a brilliantly scary experience which was worth every penny. Much preferred this to the... More

We chose Count Orlok, expecting a bit of hokey. It was a very fun historic walk thru the scare/horror genre of movies. It brought back very fond memories of teenaged terror. Our visiting teen was unfamiliar with many of the older movies, but for us Gen Xers, having been raised on horror movies ranging from Lon Chaney to Stephen King... More

This is not a large place but if you are a fan of horror movies you should definitely check it out. Admission is $8. They have figures from the 1920's through current, along with autographed memorabilia.

If you're into monster movies and have 30 minutes, this is your place. Well done replicas of famous movie monsters like Dracula, Alien, Freddy Kruger, etc. with facts about each.
