You may need to wait outside on our front plaza for up to 15 minutes before entering the museum for your visit. Please plan accordingly especially during inclement weather. Tickets are sold ONLINE ONLY and we suggest you purchase them before you come to Salem, but be mindful of heavy traffic during peak seasons. We look forward to welcoming you to the Salem Witch Museum.
