Description

We are prepping for our upcoming exhibit:

INESCAPABLE: THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF HARRY HOUDINI
SEPTEMBER 27, 2019 – JANUARY 5, 2020

Harry Houdini wasn’t born. He was invented.

The world’s most famous magician began life as Erik Weisz, the son of a Hungarian rabbi. In 1878 immigration to the U.S. transformed Erik Weisz into Ehrich Weiss. It was the first of many transformations for the man who would become the first international superstar.

Inescapable, curated by performer and magician David London, tells the story of how Ehrich Weiss became Harry Houdini and investigates the technologies, marketing prowess and entertainment trends that transformed him into a superstar. On one level, the exhibit is pure fun – incorporating magic, escapes, séances, films, rare artifacts and hands-on illusions.  On a deeper level, the exhibit pulls back the curtain, revealing the story of the man behind the image.

But don’t worry, we will be open for October ‘Thirds-day” to give you extra time to explore Inescapable!
