This was my first time seeing this performance but my Aunt and sister saw it before. It was very informative. The performance wasn't too long. The guide was very nice.

I am glad that I stopped in the tourist spot. It was entertaining but didn't seem like there was much put into the experience. They re-enacted the Witch Trial. Short and vague with only two people and dummy props for the other characters. The dungeon...More

Had to go in to visit some witches....reasonable entry fee and was in the neighborhood so we stopped in for a tour. Thought it would be cheesy but ended up learning some facts! Gift shop was big and bought some stuff for the grands.
