A nice walk through the Corwin House. It's $8.25 to get in, definitely worth it if you're there for Salems history. Staff were pleasant and the house was prepared in a way that you could read and see all of the artifacts that are there.

I worked at the Witch house during the tercentennial (through middle and High school) and we use to give tours of this home. The 4 rooms of the home took about 45minutes, the furniture and history of how colonists lived during the time of the Witch Craft Hysteria were discussed. I recently went back to visit with my teenage daughter,... More

If you're a history buff, this is a must while in Salem. If you're more into the "witchcraft" scene, you probably won't find what you're looking for. This house never housed accused witches, but rather, warrants for their arrest were signed here. The house is a wonderful glimpse into life of the 17th century.

This small colonial house has been preserved and converted into a museum which tells the story of the Salem Witch Trials through the context of one family's story. This home once belonged to a judge involved with the trials. The home has five rooms full of period furniture and household items. Written information tells the story of the witch trials,... More

A must see in Salem, truly unreal the things that happened in our country during those times. Thankfully we have come a long way. Great factual history that will blow your mind.

It is a very well preserved house of the era, but not well represented as the Witch House. It was owned by one of the Judges at the trail, and had no real part in the Trial.

Its an actual home from the witch trials. The museum has extremely friendly staff that will answer all your questions. Enjoyed the stories and there is a great little shop for trinkets after the self guided tour.

The moment we walked in, I instantly had vibes in this home! It has been preserved so well, and, getting to walk in the home and see where the children were bore upstairs, etc. was just so incredible!!! The stairs in this house are very narrow and don't feel all that supportive so if you have weak knees, etc. I... More
