The Salem Witch Museum presents one of the most enduring and emotional events in American History…the Witch Trials of 1692. Visitors are given a dramatic history lesson using stage sets with life-size figures, narration and lighting. Our exhibit, Witches: Evolving Perceptions, explores how society has identified and reacted to witches through time while looking at the stereotype, practice of witchcraft today and, most importantly, the phenomenon of witch hunting.

The museum store carries an extensive selection of books on the trials as well as high quality t-shirts and souvenirs. The museum presentation is available in French, German, Japanese, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Mandarin and Cantonese.
