This is such a great hidden treasure just outside downtown Austin. John is an outstanding performer and he wears his passion for magic on his sleeve (with nothing up it). The museum is packed with photos, posters, and one-of-a-kind artifacts spanning the past 150 years of magic and the host / performer is more than eager to come point out some of his favorites and tell stories about all the greats - Dai Vernon, Harry Houdini, Doug Henning and more. John has a classic style of close-up magic and our crew of 4 all had a blast. Would love to return to see him again!

Wonderful entertaining show very professionally and expertly performed. My husband is an amateur magician and he couldn't figure out how many of the illusions were done.
John Magic and his family are very warm and engaging. A wonderful evening and well worth the drive outside of downtown Austin. Easy to get to with Lyft or Uber. DO NOT MISS this.

My husband, 18yo son & I thoroughly enjoyed John Magic's close up show. We are STILL saying "how did he do that?!" I highly recommend for a fun evening out. Can't wait to bring our family for the stage show!

The museum has interesting pictures and memorabilia of various magicians.
The magic tricks were very professional. The audience was definitely entertained. The magician was personable and his assistant was funny. We would return and take friends.
