Harry Houdini Museum

1433 North Main Avenue

The Houdini attraction is a continuous non-stop wonderful major happening. It's amazing, exciting, historic, & family friendly. Fun & educational. The World's Only Building devoted to most famous magician of all time, Harry Houdini. He did special challenges in our area. Can be seen no where else. The New York Times, the most critical paper in the world, called our events "high quality entertainment." Great for all ages, from 3 to 93. Includes a fabulous fun 55 minute stage magic show with noted professional magicians & live animals including doves, a rabbit, a duck & two poodles. Includes the rarest film footage of Harry Houdini not shown anywhere else. Not to be missed.

This was a highly enjoyable and educational experience in a small group setting that starts with a short film with rare footage, followed by a guided tour of three rooms filled with a vast assortment of Houdini memoriabilla and finally a fantastic audience participation magic show. Dorothy Dietrich and Bravo the Great are very knowledgeable about all things Houdini and are both talented personable magicans who are eager and dedicated to keeping Houdini history alive. It was a captivating 3 hour event that I would recommend for small groups as well as both young and old. Well worth the 90 minute ride from NJ and just a few minutes from interstate 81. HOUDINI LIVES (at least in spirit and in Scranton!)

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.
