Salem Wax Museum of Witches & Seafarers
The Salem Wax Museum of Witches and Seafarers gives a face to the Salem Witch Trials, with London-made wax figures that capture the history of the time. This museum also features wax recreations that showcase maritime life in the 1700s and early 1800s. Children love the interactive exhibits, including learning how to tie a nautical knot. Visitors are also welcome to see the Old Burial Point behind the museum, which is one of the oldest cemeteries in the city.

we bought a pass to see 2 attractions & since we had a kid (10 yr old) with us, we chose this as one site. It was so lame & a waste of time & money. We waited in line 15-20 minutes for a cheezy one-room exhibit of wax people dressed up in bad costumes. The write-ups in front of the exhibits gave us info about Salem people that we already knew.-like basic knowledge of Salem that you read about. -wish we would've pass on this one. We went to Frankenstein's Lab after (haunted house) that was MUCH better! Dont waste $ on this!!!
I'm trying to book a birthday party for my daughter in October and have left four messages for someone to call me back. Obviously they don't care about group business. No one will return my phone calls. If I can't get anywhere before the visit, I wouldn't expect much during the visit.
I think we'll skip this attraction.
What a waste. It's clear that the owners set the place up and then left it to the wierdo's that work there. I was very dissapointed. We came up from NY to do a few of the tours and were unhappy with this one.
