"Fun with the Family"

Featured on the Travel Channel’s Magic Road Trip, the Houdini Museum is a must-see for budding magicians. The museum takes visitors back to the days of vaudeville, when traveling performers like Houdini frequently visited the Scranton area. There are continuous guided tours, a film, and nonstop magic shows, along with Houdini memorabilia and exhibits about Scranton’s vaudeville past. A wonderful magic show is performed by nationally known magicians such as Dorothy Dietrich and Bravo the Great. Lots of laughs, live animals, and audience participation.
The Halloween “Spook-tacular” Theater of Illusion takes place from Columbus Day through Halloween. Appropriate for all ages, this magic show features classic illusions with nothing too scary for little ones.
