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.

  • For the options in Salem, this was my favorite historic museum. Our tour guide was well spoken, gave good information and this tour lent new information that other spots didn’t have. It ended a little abruptly but other than that we enjoyed ourselves.
  • Best stop on the witch tour. The live reenactment was cool and the dungeon gives a good idea of how times were back then. The guides were informative and nice.
