Things to Consider Before You Visit

Updated November 1, 2021.

Thank you for an epic October! The Salem Wax Museum and Salem Witch Village remain open. Check our calendar for open hours. Single site and the combination Hysteria Pass tickets are available for purchase online and in-person at either location.

We are a private business and are working with the city of Salem to ensure we are operating safely. We have nearly 20,000 sq.ft. of museum and haunted house space, which ensures social distancing and keeps our lines small and spaced.
