I wanted to see this house because it is the only building still standing that existed during the witch trials. There is a small entry fee which allows the visitor to enter and go through the house on a non-guided tour. There is a lot...More

Some really cool memorabilia and stories in the house. Not really a witch house if that's what your after but still some great history. Great little witchy things like a poppet and witches cake etc so still cool to see.

It's called the witch house, but it's really just a small colonial house of one of the judges. It was moderately interesting and cost $8 per person. Definitely not a have to see, but I suppose if you're there it's part of the equation.

Old house, first and second floors accessible. Showed what conditions a wealthy family of that time lived in. Interesting medical beliefs of the time as well. Not sure if it's worth the cost. But something to do while seeing the history of Salem. My daughter...More

It's a historical landmark and should be preserved, and it's interesting to read the tidbits about facets of the residents as well as the trials, but if you're looking for details on the witch culture specifically, you can get it at many of the Salem...More
