    Salem Witch Museum

    Like most Salem museum's this is more an attraction than a museum and sheds little light on the actual witch trial events in Salem.

    We walked by this famous cemetery which was pretty full of tourists. I'd like to go back to Salem when it's not Halloween to take a walk around it and check out the ancient tombstones.

    Roger Conant is the founder of Salem. His statue is right across from the Witch Museum. The statue itself is impressive and appears to keep watch over the town he founded.

    Entrance on Derby St

    This was closed in spite of literature stating open 10-5 daily. NOt favorable and it looked like probably not worth the trip. It was a small building

    Probably one of the best sites to see. Many of these types of 'Museums' available, this one is the only one that I went to that was worth the money.

    House of Seven Gables. A little off the path, but definitely worth the extra walk.
    It was interesting to see all of the secret passagways and how small things were made so long ago.
