This includes a conversation on the cultural belief in witchcraft, and the environment that allowed it to manifest into the Salem Witchcraft Trials. This is a historical look into a sensationalized and tragic event. The themes are often disturbing and discussed in detail. As such, this tour is not recommended for children under 10.
