The Salem Historical Society

Please make the Salem Historical Society a part of your fall activities.  If you have never taken a tour of our four buildings, you are in for a treat.  These tours will end at the end of October.  Trolley tours will continue throughout the year.

Salem has such rich history and there is so much to learn.  We constantly are receiving new "old" items and adding them to our displays.  We love to get visitors.
Smithsonian magazine is sponsoring their 14th Annual Museum Day Live! Hundreds of museums and cultural institutions around the United States are participating, including the Salem Historical Society and Museum. Last year’s event drew over 200,000 participants around the country and this year’s event is expected to attract more museum goers than ever before.
Nationally the Museum Day Live! has been designated for Saturday, September 22, but the Salem Historical Society had the option to offer the free admission with the downloaded ticket for two guests on Sunday, September 23 during regular hours of 1:00 to 4:00 with the last tour beginning at 3:30. One ticket per household is permitted. For more information about Museum Day Live! 2018 and a full list of participating museums and cultural institutions, visit
