OK, so SH wanted to see the Sale Witch Museum and BH and I stayed back on the ship for some relaxation and private time. She was a bit late getting back, but we still had time to get a shuttle to Quincy Market, which turned out to be n overcrowded food court. Note: close to Halloween is a bad time to explore Salem/Boston. Read Less

While the hour bus ride to Salem proceeded uneventfully, apparently our guide had very little to say about the area. Most of her comments were in retrospect, shortly after we passed the items of interest. The Witch's Museum was a pre-recorded autorama, but tastefully done, with dioramas of various scenes around the hall. About an hour show, and they told/showed a good story. Worthwhile to attend. But there's lots more to little Salem, and having a more energetic guide would have made this visit much more enjoyable. After considerable prodding, she dumped us near artists square to fend for ourselves for an hour. Read Less

The main Salem Witch Museum was recommended by City worker as he said the others were a little hokey. We really enjoyed the "SALEM WITCH MUSEUM" which was not consuming at all.
