Recently, on the occasion of a business trip, I had a chance to revisit the tiny, but wonderful Houdini Museum of New York. It is located right within Roger Dreyer‘s Fantasma Magic store, hidden now at 213 West 35th Street, 4th floor. Roger is an avid collector and a super nice guy. He is also a great salesman, so beware: He may make you want magical…uumm…things from his many shelves and boxes!
On display are a sub trunk, an escape coffin, posters and handcuffs, the famous robot from one of Houdini’s movies, an original bust from his gravesite (on loan from the Society of American Magicians), and many other paraphernalia. Hard to escape their timeless magic!
