The Satanic Temple (CURRENTLY CLOSED)
Museums, Museums & Attractions
Salem Art Gallery is the International Headquarters for The Satanic Temple (TST), a non-theistic religious organization with active chapters worldwide. It is home to the infamous, controversial 8½ foot-tall bronze Baphomet statue, which has obtained worldwide renown as a patriotic and Satanic symbol of pluralism and religious freedom. Visitors are invited to sit upon the statue and pose for pictures as well as explore the rest of the macabre and lavishly adorned gallery which is laden with art and media related to TST’s culture and campaigns. One can also explore an occult library with an exhibit on The Satanic Panic of the 1980s, the lavish throne room of the TST founders, and a fully stocked gift shop. The gallery hosts seasonal art exhibitions that feature the work of groundbreaking artists as well as assorted rituals, lectures, and other relevant TST events throughout the year.
