Recommended for children ages 4–7.

Learning and performing magic tricks is tough—but when the going got tough, Houdini didn’t quit! He followed his dreams to become the best escape artist and moved to New York City. After reading about Houdini’s life and performances, consider staying at the museum and learning magic tricks of your own from celebrity magician Matt Wayne.
