We recently took the kids from our school on a field trip there.The tour was interesting and the show was great! Dorothy and Bravo were great with the children. They kept the children and the teachers entertained the whole time. I will definitely go there again with my own children. It was a great time!

Fun atmosphere for my son's birthday party. The museum provided a nice "party room" with themed wall hangings that are changed based on childs age! They provided pizza, drinks, and bowls upon bowls of snacks and candy. After eating, our wonderful hostess snuck in with a cotton candy machine and all the kids got so excited. After the food and fun we were taken into the performance room where the hostess lead games like limbo and dance offs! THEN a private magic show, where the birthday boy was levitated! Amazing time and a great memory!!

What a great way to spend and afternoon. Watching the rare footage of portions of Houdini's life was great. I really loved learning so many things about him that I never knew. Seeing all of the artifacts was wonderful too..but the magic show just topped everything off. I'd been saying I was going to visit for years and I'm glad I finally went.

Small museum with world class magic act at the end. I came away with an appreciation for Houdini and how huge he was back in the day and how his legacy has lived on. It was quite a bit of a time commit though. We got there at 1pm and left at 4:30pm. I didn't appreciate the sales pitch at the end for the magic related products they had for sale there. The kids got really tired by then. But the hosts of the show were fabulous, which made it tolerable.

Great for the family, interesting and informative. Bravo took the time to sit with our six year to give him a on one lesson on how to perform one of the tricks we purchased in the magic shop. Worth every penny.
