The stories of 1692 are told through a historically accurate live presentation and tour downstairs, where you will walk thru the forest, meet Tituba in Rev. Parris’ kitchen, visit Old Salem village and view 15 life size scenes depicting these stories.

The Witch Hysteria not only enveloped Salem, but all 34 towns and villages of Essex County. Hundreds of accused witches filled the jails awaiting trial. Some died in captivity, 19 were hanged and one old man was crushed to death. A salem minister, accused by teenage girls of being the devil, was captured in Maine, hanged here, and had his head removed by another minister. Salem’s leading merchant and his wife escaped the hangman, but returned a year later to plot revenge on the accusers and the lawman who tormented the witch victims. These and many other stories of Witch Times are revealed at the Witch History museum. Combination ticket available with the Witch Dungeon Museum, New England Pirate Museum and Witch History Museum. Save $8.00 per person. Open daily 10:00am to 5:00pm. Extended Hours in October.
