As you can imagine, tourism for the 2020 season in Salem is off to a slow start; for many of us, this means major interruptions to our income, as ticket sales are dependent upon groups and travel.  However, our concern is for those affected by the Covid-19 outbreak, and Salem Sights is committed to doing its part in preventing the spread of the virus and canceling all tours.

If you plan to attend any Salem events from June to November, please consider purchasing a gift card for future use.  All other tours and ticket sales are suspended until further notice.
