salem wax museum of witches  seafarers photoThe Museum houses eerily life-like, London-made wax figures that depict Salem's vivid history from its founding in 1626 through the terrifying Hysteria of 1692. You'll come face to face with such notable Salem figures as the famed author of The Scarlet Letter and The House of Seven Gables - Nathaniel Hawthorne, the pirates of New England, the merciless Witch Trials judge - Colonel John Hathorne, and Tituba the accused 'witch' who helped fuel the hysteria of 1692 - just to name a few!

A separate hands-on activity areaofers visitors the chance to create their own souvenirs. Try a hand at gravestone rubbing from reproduction stones, practice the art of know tying as done by sailors of yesterday and today, visit a reproduction cell of the Salem jail of 1692 or pose as a pirate on the high seas!
