This is a great place for history-buffs. In fact, I think it’s the best place in Salem to learn about Southern history. Basically they’ve recreated what life was like for the original Moravian settlers back in the 18th century. So yes, expect a lot of actors walking around in colonial garbs taking photos with tourists. I personally treasure my cheesy photo with the local "gunsmith.” They’ve got a lot of activities here (tours, educational exhibits, ghost tours, etc.) to keep you occupied.
