Houdini Museum of New York


421 7th Ave, New York, NY 10001

“My brain is the key that sets me free.” This is one of Harry Houdini’s favorite expressions that he would write when he signed his name for his countless fans as one of vaudeville’s highest paid entertainers. It also represents what the Houdini Museum of New York is all about.

Their goal is to inspire all age groups to realize once you focus and set your mind on something, you can accomplish anything you desire. This was exactly the way Houdini lived his life. The museum captures Houdini’s larger than life personality from the time he was a young boy and the events and people that influenced him; how Houdini got started in magic and who were his first assistants and partners; what motivated Houdini to transform from being the King of Cards to the King of Handcuffs; how he risked his life by accepting all sort of unthinkable challenges in order to entertain his audiences; when Houdini became a motion picture star in the early days of film to his war on spiritualists. All this has led Houdini to become the most recognized name in magic despite he has been gone since 1926.
