2. Harry Houdini Museum of New York

Located within Fantasma Magic, the Houdini Museum of New York is a unique experience and a great way to celebrate the most famous escapist of all time. The museum is loaded with artifacts from Harry Houdini himself.  It is home to original keys, cuffs, straight jackets, newspaper clippings from his time spent in New York City, and even the original chest to Houdini’s most famous feat, Metamorphosis.  The museum also holds lectures and magic classes.

The Houdini Museum of New York is quite an interesting way to learn about the history of Houdini and his tricks, and being in such an odd and eccentric museum only makes it that more fun. Only at a museum completely dedicated to Houdini could you find the bust that had been stolen from his grave and eventually recovered.

One thought on “5 Places to Visit in NYC to Celebrate the Art of Magic

  1. New York City has lots of great places to see live magic. For an upscale evening, check out “Chamber Magic” starring Steve Cohen. It’s a amazing show that takes place at the Lotte New York Palace Hotel.
    Another pick: The Magician at NoMad Hotel featuring magician Dan White (a frequent guest on Jimmy Fallon’s show)
    Did I mention Speakeasy Magic at the McKittrick Hotel? Lots of fun too.
