Salem's Most Visited Museum

Salem Witch Museum

Twenty innocent people were put to death during the Witch Hysteria of 1692.
History made them famous... we make them real!

Come see why we are Salem's Most Visited Museum!

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 our second exhibit, Witches: Evolving Perceptions, live guides take you through changing interpretations of witches, the truth behind the stereotypes, witchcraft practice today and the frightening phenomenon of witch hunting.

The museum is open every day except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. Presentations are every half-hour from 10 am to 4:30 pm, with extended hours in July and August. Plan to allow at least one hour for your visit.
