The Salem Museum is the gateway to Salem attractions and historic sites. Visitors may think of the witchcraft trials or the China trade, and while those are very important aspects of Salem history, there is so much more! That’s where we come in.
We present hundreds of stories that make up Salem’s rich past.
The Museum is closed until further notice.
Your visit to the city may be short. Come here first to get a clear idea of what you can see and what you might be missing! Because when it gets down to it, Salem itself is a museum and we are your orientation center. From here, you can visit historic homes, other terrific museums, living history attractions, and a number of famous and not-so-famous locations throughout the city.
