Date: Saturday, July 30th.

Seats are limited. Please sign up HERE by Wednesday, 7/27. For more information, or questions, please contact Ms. Kun Xie at kxie@bryant.edu. 

Founded in 1626, Salem’s early history was clouded by religious intolerance that led to the witchcraft trials of 1692. During the 18th and 19th centuries, it developed as one of New England’s leading maritime and shipbuilding centers, and during the American Revolution and the War of 1812 its port served as a privateers’ base. At its peak between 1776 and 1812, Salem was the busiest trading port and the 6th largest city in the U.S.

Founded in 1799 by sea captains, the Peabody Essex Museum is the oldest continually operated museum in the U.S. The museum possesses extraordinary collections, including works of art and culture featuring maritime art and history; American art; Asian, Oceanic, and African art; Asian export art; two large libraries; and 22 historic buildings. Today’s collection has grown to include more than a million works and Yin Yu Tang, the only complete Qing Dynasty house outside of China.

The Salem Witch Museum examines one of the most enduring and emotional events in American History, the Salem witch trials of 1692. The museum consists of two presentations. The first provides an immersive look into the events of 1692. The second exhibit, "Witches: Evolving Perceptions," explores the meaning behind the word witch and the evolution of the image of the witch over time.
