A guided tour through centuries of mannequin land teaches the truth and fiction of witches. See a shaman, a country witch offering herbal remedies, a pumpkin-headed scarecrow monster, Giles Cory under pile of rocks, and “Mr. Fluffy,” a dragon who gives you good luck if you rub his belly. Fun story: Guide explains that the first elephant to come to the United States arrived via Salem Harbor, and was drunk because its ship ran out of water and so drank to rum.
