Witness reenactments of the Salem witch trials at Witch Dungeon Museum. The daily performances are based on historic manuscripts from the 1692 trials. The dramatic "possession" of Salem's young women led to the hanging of 19 people and two dogs. After watching the harrowing performance, you can tour the reconstructed dungeon below. You can save on the admission fee by purchasing a combination ticket that includes entry to three museums within walking distance of each other. For Witch Dungeon Museum and beyond, use our Salem day trip site to get the most from your Salem vacation.

  • Excellent reenactment of a Salem Witch Trial. Our tour guide was friendly, informative and engaging. Despite October crowds, we got right in for a showing.

  • The museum is only open at certain times, as with the reenactment it only goes every half hour. So you may have to wait a bit if you arrive at the wrong time. We arrived right when a giant school...

  • Neat experience to learn some Salem history. Actors play out a witch trial for you to get you to understand what that process was like before they bring you down to the dungeons and explain what life was like living in them. Worth the money and the visit, good value for the inexpensive cost. My 11 year old very much enjoyed it so kids recommended, although my 2 year old didn't make it past the first scene but she fell asleep as soon as she sat in her stroller outside so had it not been nap time, she might have also done well sitting and then going through. We waited 25 minutes but did not need to ore order tickets. Check them out if you're in Salem!
  • - staff super friendly. - nice gift shop. - prices not bad, $15 if I remember correctly per person and gift shop prices not bad either. - good little reenactment and tour. - overall a cool experience. - recommend this if you're visiting Salem.
