Bad organization bad museum! Dragon show outside without ticket is the better part. The ticket is not worth the money you spent

Having no idea what to expect our 2 & 4 year old LOVED it here when we visited in May 2015. Not a lot to do on your the surface, but a good couple of hours of activity...We didn't do the 'history' bit though as was getting late. Loads of interaction! Nearly missed the magic show, bit it had no... More

Fantastic introduction to trompe l'oeil and magic tricks with a good show and exhibitions. Focuses on the famous local clock-maker and magician Harry Houdini (Houdin) of Blois. Check out the dragons!

Just in front of the castle, our kids aged 7 to 13 enjoyed it very much They would have liked it to be a bit bigger Good location and a nice way for your kids to have fun between two castles...

Good for youngsters. Blois is the native city of the great magician Robert Houdin. You have plenty of magic lessons Inside and the building with its dragoons is real fun. Nothing really important but fun for the family.

Just as other reviewers have found there was no a lot to hold our interest. Nicely laid out and the show was a fair attempt to entertain but really there was little story to enjoy or revelations to discover.

Very well located, just opposite the château, the Maison de la Magie, is a wonderful place for children and adults alike. Nicely pedagogic without being overwhelming and with very helpful staff.

I travelled to Blois with my parents over summer, but this little House of Magic has enchanted me since. We hadn't seen any publicity material, or heard of The Maison de la Magie so stumbling across the enchanted house full of moving, peering dinosaur heads from the shuttered windows over the square was mesmerising. It’s a really sweet attraction, and... More

Brought my 11 year old son again for the second time and enjoyed it again. Items in the shop are a bit of a rip off. Too expensive for tricks made in China.
