So interesting to learn about the history in this town. The building itself is so interesting to see. And the staff gives a pretty great deliverance on what all happened in Salem, and they talk through the different interpretations of witchcraft. I only gave it 4 stars because I guess I would have seen some more historical items, which is probably at a different museum.
Very fun and interactive and entertaining. They allowed me and my service dog into the museum, so I greatly appreciate that. It was a good-length mechanical mannequin show, which explained the Salem Witch Trials quite well, and after the presentation (about a 15 to 1p min presentation), there was a short walk through museum display with a guide, which was lovely. The museum itself is in a beautiful old church, so the layout was great, and the gift shop had a lot of nice and cute gifts. I really loved it.
