“Salem's history in wax”

The Salem Wax Museum of Witches & Seafarers—in operation for more than 20 years—features 50 London-made wax figures depicting scenes from Salem's history. From the infamous 1692 witch trials to its days as a bustling seaport, the museum is full of dioramas populated with figures that will make you look twice—crossed eyes, missing fingers, and questionable wardrobe choices abound.

Really small and cheesy. It's a tourist trap.

I can appreciate the whole purpose of this place, but I agree that it's super cheesy. It was the first place we stopped when we reached Salem. There are so many other choices in discovering the history of witches, this is not your best option.
