The Salem Witch Museum, founded in 1972, offers two historical presentations. The first tells the tragic story of the 1692 witch trials, and takes place in a large auditorium with life-sized stage sets which are illuminated and dramatically-narrated to immerse visitors in the world of 17th century Salem. The second exhibit, Witches: Evolving Perceptions, examines the European witchcraft trials, the evolving image of the witch, and the larger issues of persecution and scapegoating in American history.
