The outside of the museum is very neat looking as it was an old church. The history the trials is an important part of this town and it is such a shame that they narrative/action/play is not more engaging and entertaining. I do suggest going if you have never been.

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.
