Salem Witch Museum

A $9.50 value - Included with your Go Boston Card!

"She afflicts me! She comes to me at night and torments me! She's a witch!" The Salem Witch Museum takes you back to 1692 Salem, where these words struck terror into the hearts of townspeople. Dramatic stage sets offer an unforgettable history lesson.

Do you believe in witches? Don't answer until you’ve visited the Salem Witch Museum, located north of Boston. This remarkable museum brings you back to Salem Village as it existed in 1692. Visitors are given a dramatic history lesson using stage sets with life-size figures, lighting and narration. Learn about the word “witch” in the “Witches: Evolving Perception” exhibit, a provocative tour that examines the pagan midwife, the associations that led to the stereotypical “witch” perception, modern witchcraft and the phenomenon of the witch hunt. The presentation is also available in Japanese, French German, Italian, Russian, Spanish, Mandarin and Cantonese.

Go Boston Card is accepted until 5:30 pm during July, August, and October. If visiting the Museum after 5:30 pm, standard admission will apply.
