Out of all of the many museums The Salem wax museum is probably my favorite. It is really neat! If you have kids they will really have fun looking at the wax figures and hearing all of the spooky, yet important facts on the tragic witch trials that occurred. If you happen to be visiting the city around the time of Halloween, or Samhain, be prepared. It will be nearly impossible to get in to these museums. The line went on, very long outside! It is a shame, because it really makes a fun learning experience. If possible, stop in and tour another season. You will have a much easier time getting inside!
