Salem Witch Village

Salem's most unique place is the history of witches. Salem was originally a small town where new immigrants from the north of the United States gathered and lived. There was no special place in Salem - until "Witches" appeared. In 1692, the myth of gods and ghosts brought ordinary people to attack and maim each other. The pain of this story not only stops in sadness and reflection, but also has a response in the field of literature and art, and continues to expand. Today, professional witches and witch lovers from all over the world often gather in this town, just like attending an academic seminar.

Every Halloween, tourists flock to witch Town, where people dressed as witches or ghosts can be seen everywhere. October is full of Halloween atmosphere. For tourists who are tired of high-rise buildings and city life, it is a good choice to come to such a quiet and beautiful town and experience the pure American style.

Peabody Essex Museum

In the center of the town, there is a conspicuous Beige modern building, which is the oldest in the West and one of the most dynamic and creative museums in the United States today. It was founded in 1799 and has a history of 215 years. The development of museums and small towns is the same. With more than 1.8 million works of art, artifacts, and specimens from all over the world, the museum ranks third among North American museums. The collection has never been exhibited in China. It has the largest collection of China's 19th-century old photos, nearly 10000 of which are collected here. There are also the largest and most comprehensive collection of Chinese export artworks in the world, including 8000 pieces of porcelain, nearly 6000 pieces of paintings, 1200 pieces of gold, silver, and copperware, and a large number of furniture.

Salem Wax Museum

The theme of the museum is very special. It features sailors and stories about witches and the dark arts.

Here you can see playboy, hanged women, and witches in all kinds of horror stories.
