The World of Witches Museum is a different witch museum located in Salem, Massachusetts. This museum is designed and operated by Rev. Don Lewis who has written over 9 books on the subject of witches and witchcraft. This museum takes you through Neanderthal times all the way up to modern day witchcraft and witch trials still going on today. So, if you ever wondered why witches are green, fly on brooms and have pointed hats this museum is for you.

Salem has too many attractions with similar names! This one opened in 2010 as a museum about modern practicing Witches on Pickering Wharf and it closed in 2012. This attraction had nothing to do with the 1692 Essex county witch-hunt. Some of the reviews here...More

Informative but contrived. The name sells you. The narrative was a bit Vincent Price. Displays tried to tie in witch hunt, McCarthyism and AIDS. What a stretch.

We visited here while in Salem. It is done pretty good and seems to be based on the original witches trials.

For about $15 per person expected more than sitting on benches in a large room for 15-20 minutes looking at lighted room settings with a taped commentary. Have seen more on TV on NatGeo and Discovery. The room next door had some interesting glass showcases...More
