Salem Kids Tours
“A Wicked Good Tour!” We are Salem’s one and only walking tour for children and families. There is no other tour like this one.
Salem Kids Tour meets at 185 Essex St., Pamplemousse. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
This is the original, classic Salem Kids Tour, which is a fun, kid-friendly tour of Salem’s mysterious past. As we walk through Salem’s historic downtown, kids will hear Witchcraft Trials stories, but that’s not all! We talk about the Golden Age of Sail, famous visitors to Salem, a “moving” cemetery, and an incredible escape. The tour ends at the Witchcraft Trials Memorial.
Slightly Spooky Tour meets at 316 Essex St., First Church in Salem, Unitarian Universalist
In addition to historical stories, ghost stories are included on this tour. This tour is a bit off the beaten path, and makes its way past some of Salem’s most beautiful buildings in the renowned McIntyre District. We’ll visit some of the most haunted and historic sites in Salem, hearing tales of famous authors, Salem’s connection to the Revolution, and of course, the infamous Witchcraft Trials. The tour ends at the ancient Broad Street Cemetery. Please note that there are no restrooms on this tour, and plan accordingly.
Alicia Diozzi, M.Ed. leads the tours, with occasional help from other qualified teachers and guides. Alicia is a middle school social studies teacher with a background in drama, who loves to share her joy and enthusiasm for learning with students and tour guests alike. We will be learning in one of the most fascinating outdoor classrooms in the world. Salem Kids Tours were created to provide high-quality tours for visiting families. Typical history tours can be too long and too boring for kids, and typical haunted tours tend to be graphic and intense. We want to offer a great tour to children and families that is fun, funny, well-researched, and educational.
Both tours are entirely outdoors, and are one hour long. Wheelchairs and strollers are more manageable on the classic tour. At the end of the Spooky Tour, there is a set of five steep steps into the cemetery, which is not accessible for those on wheels. Please email me with any questions about accessibility. Prior to meeting your tour, please make sure you have the right meeting spot. Text or email with any questions about the meeting place.
See you in Salem!
