Summer of Magic
Visitors can explore rarely exhibited artifacts from the Golden Age of Magic—including unique items from David Copperfield’s private collection that Harry Houdini used to make his thrilling escapes. Families can meet magicians and escape artists from the past—all brought to life by Living Historians from the present. On weekends, young magicians can also check out a special Summer of Magic-themed History Detective briefcase in our DiMenna Children’s History Museum and use it to explore the exhibition! Each briefcase is chock full of activities that invite families to draw, discuss, interpret, and even do a little magic of their own.
