For $9 dollars, and a half hour wait, we were disappointed that they only had narrated presentation with lit stages. A bunch of people seated, some stages were behind you and cannot be seen.

The next room had 4 areas of interest, again voice narration. Boring, boring, and more boring. Save your money and take a picture.

I probably wouldn't pay the fee for the tour again. Not that impressive for the cost. Tells the historical story with mannequins and then a tour does the same around another 4 mannequins.

It was a "presentation" with weird wax figures of the people involved in the trials. It kind of felt like "It's a small world" without the movement and singing. The second part was a guided tour of a little room with more "talking" wax figures and posters on a wall.

The terrible reviews really are true. I have no idea why this is even considered a museum. You sit in a room, the lights go out, and various mannequins light up while telling their stories of the witch trials through a recording. Good times.

Well worth the price of admission, don't be expecting a hollywood production but they have done their best with what they have. The staff were friendly and helpful and answered all our questions, if you're looking for info on the salem witch trials this is your best bet among the offerings on the same topic in Salem-Just a note on anyone wishing to go it is a tour it is not self guided. and no photos of anything you see on the tour are allowed.
