Well if your in Salem, it would make sense to come visit the museum to learn about the trials. The town was hoping , kind of reminded me of a New England coastal town during beach season. We got to the museum prior to 10am,...More

The history was interesting and the first part of the tour was pretty impressive with the lit displays. The rest of the tour was a major disappointment for the money. Led you through a tiny room with plaques on the wall and mannequins of different...More

This place has the great location and imposing facade, but thats all it has going for it. Everything is so out dated straight from the 70s or 80s. They crowd you all into a room for the first part and unless you get to sit...More

Definitely a must do when you go to Salem. This should be the first thing you do so that you know about the history before hitting all the historic landmarks! Very informative.

There is no dedicated parking for the museum. We found parking about a block or two away. And the walk was enjoyable.
