  • Interesting house across from the maritime site. Check out the amazing architecture on the custom house and then see the rest of the site.  more »
  • Interesting piece of history, especially after visiting the House of Seven Gables. Ties some things together.  more »
  • It is definitely worth the visit. It gives you a perspective to socio-economic life in Salem beyond the infamous witch trials. It is a nice historical building with preserved artifacts from glorious days of sea trade. There is also additional exhibits in the back of the building which is rarely visited but provides great photo opportunities. If you are lucky, the visit will be even better with a great guide from the national park service.
  • Very neat building, but the guide, Larry Muller, was amazing. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Thx!
