All reviews slight of hand love magic no pressure to buy quick visit worth the effort answer questions midtown manhattan new york memorabilia shop collection handcuffs coffin life elevator documentary demonstration
Great magic and high quality magic tools that can serve everyone from the pro to the newbie. The staff is spot on and can recommend the right magic for the right skill and the shop is convenient and cozy.
Quirky little place - you would never find it unless you are really searching. A few interesting artefacts to look at and an opportunity to learn some interesting personal information about Houdini (he hated mediums and did his best to expose their tricks!). Apparently you...More
This magic shop in an office building on a side street in Midtown Manhattan was a pleasant surprise. It's small, but free, and had some really interesting artifacts from Houdini's life. The magic shop clerk was very helpful, and noted that this is the 2nd...More
The Houndini Museum is more of a gallery without prices, of Houdini artifacts and memorabilia. There are many things here for sale that are related to magic in general and not necessarily to Houdini. If you are thrilled by magic acts or are an amateur...More
Has many bits of Houdini memorabilia in a small space in an office building.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
