My sister and I took our teenage daughters here last weekend. The content of the material was accurate but the overall experience was somewhat rushed. I didn’t realize it was over when it had ended. It just ended. It was informative but I am not...More

The host for the tour yesterday was speaking so fast that we were unable to understand what she was saying half the time. I found myself not even listening to what she was saying, so i really didn't learn anything from this tour.

This was worth seeing. The trial kept you fully engaged and put in perspective what you were going to see when you went in the dungeon. Can't believe that this really happened.

A wonderful experience to visit with my family. The mock trial re enactment and walk through dungeon is quite informative.

My favorite Museum in Salem. Not only do they do a partial re-enactment of one of the Salem Witch Trials, they take you downstairs to a reproduction of the dungeon (jail). It's like walking back in time.

There is a mock trial acted out before the tour of the dungeon. The dungeon is very realistic and allows you to imagine what is was like for those imprisoned there.

This museum was not on my list of things to do when I visited Salem. I stumbled upon it, and was SO glad I did. It was entertaining and rich with history, and a replica of the dungeon. Chills.

The short play gets you started and ready for the walk through the dungeon. Get ready for that moment where you may jump..

The staff put on a mock trial. It was entertaining. And they we were escorted to the dungeon to see what it would have been like back in the day. The area was small and not worth $10 a person.

I would say for that age group, the witch history museum. They both have mannequins but I think smaller children would better enjoy the Witch History Museum.
