The Houdini Museum in Scranton is devoted entirely to the world's greatest magician, Harry Houdini of course!
Not only can you enjoy learning about this magical icon, but you can also enjoy a fabulous guided exhibit AND a fantastic fun magic show with live magician and animals too!
The tour, movie and magic show all begin at 1pm (unless otherwise noted), so arrive as close to opening as you can, to see it all in the right order
Your magical experience also includes a fun, one hour stage show with famous magicians, complete with adorable live animals (yes, rabbits will be there!), comedy, and audience participation!
Have you ever seen an audience member float up in the air, and have a hoop passed around them? At the Houdini Museum, you will, and you just might not believe your eyes!
Your experience at the Houdini Museum will also include rare film footage of Harry Houdini himself, not shown anywhere else. The family can also explore the museum that showcases artifacts related to Houdini and his career, really showcasing what an amazing man he was!
The entire experience takes up to 2 1/2 hours, so make sure you plan accordingly. It's a day out with kids that just might make them re-think what they know reality to be!
