Tickets are sold for specific times during the day, i.e. 10:00, 10:30, 11:00, 11:30 etc.  Museum presentations begin every half hour and you should allow about one hour for your visit. We post times of available presentations in front of the Museum daily during Haunted Happenings. On Friday and Saturday we are open until 10:00 pm and on Sunday we’ll be open until 7:00 pm. We also recommend that you take the Salem Ferry or Newburyport/Rockport Commuter line to the city this weekend. Vehicular traffic and parking will be difficult. Please plan accordingly.  Visit SalemWitchMuseum.com/about/directions and Haunted Happenings Parking for more information.

If you plan on wearing a Halloween costume to Salem this weekend or on Halloween, please be aware that when you are onsite here at the Museum, we ask that you remove your masks and that you do not bring weapons real or fake to Salem.  Backpacks and suitcases are NOT allowed in the Museum and we do not have anywhere to store these items. Wishing you all a safe and festive Halloween!
