Please note*** On weekends we anticipate large crowds for Haunted Happenings. While we do not sell our tickets online, doors will open at 9:45 am so that you can purchase your admission. Tickets are sold for specific times during the day, i.e. 10:00, 10:30, 11:00, 11:30 etc.  Museum presentations begin every half hour and you should allow about one hour for your visit. We post times of available presentations in front of the Museum daily during Haunted Happenings and offer extended hours in October.

We also recommend that you take the Salem Ferry, MBTA or other Public Transportation to the city. Vehicular traffic and parking can be difficult, but if you do drive, Salem has a new shuttle for busy October weekends. Please plan accordingly.  Visit, Haunted Happenings and Hotel Availability for pertinent information. 

Witch Trials Self-Guided Tour

Our tour of the 1692 Salem Witchcraft Hysteria sites is quoted from the book, A Guide to the Salem Witchcraft Hysteria of 1692, by David C. Brown (the text and images may not be reproduced without the author's permission). The book is currently out of print.

You may click on the town and city names on the map below or on the left to view pictures (where available) and read about the sites in these locations.

This section contains descriptions of the sites from the witchcraft hysteria which can still be seen today. With few exceptions, only original houses or foundations, gravesites, and sites indicated by historic markers have been included. Sites lacking either physical remains or any historic marker have generally been omitted. Except where otherwise noted, all gravesites mentioned are marked. Following each site is a short description of its relevance to the witchcraft events.
