Follow the history of witches, witchcraft and witch hunts through the ages. Our main presentation is an overview of the events of the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. Witches – Evolving Perceptions is a provocative exhibit which examines the stereotypical witch, aspects of witchcraft in the 17th-century, modern witchcraft and the phenomenon of witch hunts.
