I loved seeing the amazing collection sometime once had, getting the true to size visuals of favorite monsters was rad. And I love my new purse

Wax figures were amazing and loved the fact that each plaque described not only the movie itself that was represented but some fun tidbits.

Worth going to if you are a horror Movie fan. Does a good job giving trivia on the different movies. The wax figures are well done. Lots of potential to expand the displays. A little pricy at $11 for the small museum.

I think this is probably one of the most understated attractions in Salem. Witches get all the pomp and fuss, that even the tours I've been on that passed Orlok's haven't event mentioned it - but they should! The museum opened later than I believe...More

This was probably the coolest place in Salem. Lost of movie props. The worst part is no pictures. But still a must see if you visit Salem.

I have walked by this place (when it was in the older location) and was always curious. Now in its new home, I decided to check it out. I'm usually not a fan of wax museums as I find the figures rarely look like the...More

Very cool place. The museum is filled with sculptures of horror movie monsters, each with great history and context. They are now located in the old bank building, and as a result have the vault at their disposal - it is being used for film...More

It was $15.00 for adults in when I went in October 2018, but you can often get discounts through online ticketing or package deals.

It’s worth messaging on their Facebook but it looks like they’re only open Saturday’s at the moment.
