It’s October and you want to visit the Salem Witch Museum! Here are some helpful tips to secure your admission at one of Salem’s busiest museums.

Patchouly - Visit October
  • Make the Salem Witch Museum one of your early stops. Tickets go on sale at 9:45 am
  • Stand in the "Purchase Ticket Here" line (the ticket line moves quickly) and when you approach the admission desk, you'll notice a large sign listing all available presentation times
  • Choose from one of the available times
  • Let the Museum staff know how many Adult, Senior Citizen, and Child tickets you need and your preferred time
  • Purchase your tickets and make note of your ticket's presentation time
  • Go enjoy your day in Salem
  • Be back at the Museum no later than 5 minutes prior to your presentation time. Note: this is the most important step as we only allow a certain number of visitors into the museum at any given time. If you miss your time, you cannot get in and we do not refund admission
  • Please allow one hour for your visit at this time of the year
  • In case of severe weather - consult our homepage "Special Alert Red Banner" for the latest information on hours of operation."
