We are open! To keep you and our staff safe, we require strict compliance with our mask and physical distance policy. We understand that you may have received both COVID vaccinations, but per state and local regulations, all must continue to wear 2 ply face coverings while in museums or in the downtown Salem area. As we are functioning at 45% capacity, 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. We look forward to welcoming you to the Salem Witch Museum.
During our winter months, should we be expecting inclement weather, please call prior to your visit. Also note that we close for several weeks in January for painting and maintenance. Contact us prior to your visit to ensure that we are open.
