I was excited to visit this museum, they do have seasonal hours, so I had to wait a few days for them to be open. Unfortunately, you can't take pictures, but it is still fun. I am a big chicken and hate unexpected jump scares, thankfully, there wasn't anything like that.

Wanted to walk through a museum but found the witch museums a bit pricey. This was was just what my family of 5 needed. If you enjoy old horror movies with Vincent Price, Alfred Hitchcock, or even more modern day frights you will love this place. A great set up and not too scary for the young.

This place makes for a fun little pit stop in Salem, MA. Admission is only $8.00 for adults and is certainly a must see for horror buffs. There are many classic and modern horror characters. The figures are so cool and it is almost like walking through a haunted house! The only downside is you cannot take pictures in the... More

Count Orlok's Nightmare Gallery showcases horror movie memorabilia, especially masks and wax models of over 60 horror movie 'stars'. It was much better than anticipated, and at $8 for an adult well worth a visit.

We were walking around Salem on an extremely cold day and dropped in to warm up. We were pleasantly surprised that this was the museum I saw on Trip advisor. We were really excited as being huge horror fans that we found it. I felt it was worth the price. Just a little disappointed that they don't allow you to... More
