      About this Salem tour

      What drove a Puritan community to accuse young girls of witchcraft in 1692? Why were the girls behaving strangely, convulsing, and having "fits"? Prepare to get chills down your spine when you uncover the disturbing answers at the Salem Witch Museum.

      The gruesome events of the Salem Witch Trials unfold through dramatic exhibits and live guides. The first victim, Bridget Bishop, was convicted on June 2, 1692 and hanged eight days later. No one was above suspicion when the summer of executions began, including an affluent couple and pious church members. Before reason returned, 20 people were executed and seven died in prison. The exhibits bring to life their devastating stories, leaving their spirits to haunt you long after you leave the museum.

      But the real question is, do you believe in witchcraft? The museum explores the myth of witches throughout the centuries. Witches: Evolving Perceptions depicts stereotypical beliefs about witches and may change everything you thought you knew about witchcraft. In fact, your visit to the Witch City may very well make you a believer.

      Let them eat witch cake

      Not your typical Betty Crocker, witch cake was made from rye meal and the urine of girls believed to be bewitched. History tells us a servant baked this cake and then fed it to a dog. The unlucky dog was to reveal who bewitched the girls. Unfortunately, the girls’ condition worsened and the servant was arrested for witchcraft. No one knows what happened to the dog, but surely it wasn't good.
