The basics

Salem was founded in 1626, and the hysteria leading to its witch trials remains an important detail in American history. To learn about this pivotal moment, you can buy same-day tickets to the Salem Wax Museum (and Salem Witch Village), or avoid the ticket lines by prebooking entry online. Inside, find wax figures of Nathanial Hawthorne and accused witches, and interactive exhibits on knot-tying and grave rubbings. 

Pair a visit to the wax museum with a guided walking tour, or an independent excursion to the nearby Salem Witch Trials Memorial and Burying Point cemetery. If you want to add-on a cultural excursion, visit the Peabody Essex Museum—located across the street—or check out the murals at Punto Urban Art Museum.
