This house has an interesting history. We didn't go inside but walking around/reading the informational signs and letting the kids explore the immediate area is relating.

The original house of the time and how the well to do people lived. Interesting insight into how it was in 1692.

We visited The Witch House with our 5 year old. Maybe not the best attraction to see with young kids (that's why I only have 3 stars) Nothing hands on. Very cool for adults, but boring for young kids. Must see for teens and up,...More

This was a cool place to visit. You really feel like you've gone back in time when you visit here. The items on display and their descriptions were really interesting.

This was a super short self guided tour and it was a little crowded when we went in. It was fairly cheap and very cool to see an old mostly authentic house from witch trial times. Only took 10 or 15 mins to get thru.
