The Salem Witch Museum examines one of the most enduring and emotional events in American History...the Witch Trials of 1692. The main presentation is based on actual trial documents. Visitors experience the drama of that dark time though thirteen life-size stage sets, figures, lighting and a stirring narration as they are witness to the web of lies and intrigue of the Salem Witch Hunt. In the museum's second exhibit, Witches: Evolving Perceptions, guides take you through changing interpretations of witches, the truth behind the stereotypes, witchcraft practice today and the frightening phenomenon of witch hunting.
Presentations are every half-hour from 10am to 4:30pm, with extended hours in July and August. Plan to allow at least one hour for your visit. Several attractions are available within walking distance from the museum.
