Did you know Michigan has the largest museum of magic memorabilia in the United States?

Oh, yeah! And it’s not that far away at all.

You’ll find the American Museum of Magic in Marshall in an old building that was built in 1868 and was used for many business over the years, including a saloon. Marshall is just a short ways away, between Jackson and Battle Creek off I-94 and 69.

Props, tricks and gadgets are on display from the most famous magicians over the past couple of hundred years: The old-timers like Houdini, Blackstone, Thurston and Robert-Houdin and the more recent like Penn & Teller, David Copperfield, Criss Angel, David Blaine and many, many more (take a look at the photo gallery above).

Three floors of nothing but magic…crammed from wall, to ceiling, to floor, and back to wall.

Something any fan of magic – and anyone who knows about Harry Houdini – will be intrigued with Houdini’s famous apparatus for his Milk Can Escape trick, ON DISPLAY at the museum!

WOW…I can’t say enough good things about this place except GO VISIT...
It's located at 107 E Michigan Avenue in Marshall!
