Covers Houdini's career and facts about Houdini not found elsewhere. The Houdini Museum has national and international significance, especially since the tragic fire of the wonderful exhibit in Niagara Falls in May of 1995.
The Houdini Museum has been open for 10 years; prior to that a part of the exhibit was on display for 13 years at the famous Magic Towne House in New York City where we also did the only Official Houdini Halloween seances in NYC during that period.[Larry, 10/24/2000]
