The American Museum of Magic

NOW OPEN FOR ITS 33RD SEASON: The American Museum of Magic in Marshall, Michigan!

On Friday, April 1, the American Museum of Magic will open its doors for an exciting new season. This year will mark the Museum’s 33rd year of delighting the public with the history of magic. The featured exhibit American Idol: Becoming Harry Houdini replaces the highly successful exhibit Penn & Teller: Bad Boys of Magic which was the highpoint of our last season. The exhibit uses artifacts and photographs from the Museum’s collection to tell the incredible story of Harry Houdini – an escape artist who not only became one of the biggest celebrities of his day, but whose name has become synonymous with magic. As several of our best known Houdini artifacts have been traveling this year on loan to major exhibitions in Houston, New York City, and California, AMM will be showcasing Houdini items that the public rarely sees. In addition, visitors from within the state will be especially interested in the story of Houdini’s final days, which have a Michigan connection. The coming season also promises a continuation of our highly popular Behind the Curtain lecture series produced by author, magician and historian Dennis Laub, and the realization of a summer day camp for young magicians. Details of these activities will be made available on our website (www.americanmuseumofmagic.org) and on our Facebook page. The American Museum of Magic is open Thursday through Saturday from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM during the months of April, May, September and October, and Tuesday through Saturday in June, July and August (Adults $5/Children $3.50), or by request (269-781-7570). The mission of the American Museum of Magic is to inspire and delight the public with the wonder of magic, as well as to document and celebrate the contributions and resilience of the magician.
