  • Really cute little museum, especially for the price. I would have liked to see more explanation for some of the pieces in there. In fact, several artifacts had no identifiers at all and left us wondering how they were used. Regardless we enjoyed it quite a lot.
  • If you have any interest in performance magic you won't find any better collection in the world. You may recognize Houdini, Blackstone, Penn, and Teller. Look for the more obscure, unknown, and discover the real mysteries.
