Many people visiting our museum think this image is a young Harry Houdini . It’s actually Jacob Hayman Houdini’s original performance partner and they were originally known as the Brother’s Houdini . This shot is after they split up and he still performed as The Bros Houdini with his own brother ( not Hardeen).

😍 TIMELESS Classic (Gimmicks and Online Instructions) 😍
by Murphys Magic starting at $350.00

"the TOP effect of 2018-2019." -Paul Romhany, *Reviews Vanish Magazine

"I was completely fooled by 'this' and when I saw how it worked, I realized only João could have invented such a clever solution."
- Joshua Jay

"A very, very clever idea!"
- Dani Ortiz

"João Miranda continues to demonstrate a level of creativity that places him among the all-time greatest minds in the development of incredibly clever and practical apparatus. Not only will the functionality of Timeless make you smile, in the right hands, it will absolutely slay. This is closing effect level stuff!"
- Eric Samuels

João Miranda is a highly-respected magic creator having created original illusions for some of the biggest names in magic, including; David Copperfield, Lu Chen, Xavier Mortimer as well as many others.

TIMELESS uses a new concept in magic that takes the classic "object to impossible location" to new heights. The effect is so strong you could close any show, large or small with TIMELESS.

Effect:
A beautifully packaged box is placed on a table before the performance begins. The magician then borrows any small object from the audience, has it signed then makes it vanish!

The magician then walks over to the table and picks up the mysterious package.The package is opened, and from it the spectator removes a red gift box tied with a golden bow. The spectator then unties the bow, removes the lid and finds inside a beautiful wrist watch. The watch is cleanly placed on the spectators palm.

Without ANY suspicious moves the magician cleanly unscrews the back of the watch. The back is then lifted off of the watch and the borrowed object is found inside!

TIMELESS combines everyday objects and modern technology, making the trick 100% automatic and self-contained.

Take a look at these features:
* The cleverly gimmicked boxes and hidden electronic system do all the work for you.
* You will be blown away once you see the ingenius method behind the trick!
* The trick works 100% automatically, and the boxes and watch can be handled freely by the spectators.
* The trick can be performed in close-up situations, parlor, or on stage.
* Due to the clever way the gimmicks are built the trick is very easy to perform.

TIMELESS comes in 2 different designs; Classic and Sport

Timeless comes complete ready to perform. Also included are several routines and ideas, including a mind-blowing mentalism effect.

"I am fortunate to be a 'working' magician performing hundreds of a shows a year. That being said, I can guarantee that you will love what Joao has to offer. His tricks are so well thought out, very reliable and very practical for the 'working' magician. With Joao, What you see is what you get. Whether its the Lynx Blackboards, Timeless, or his version of Cardiographic you will love the reactions you get from the crowd and you will love how easy his stuff is to travel, maintain and set up."

America's Got Talent Finalist & NFL Football Player

THE MOST VISUAL AND STARTLINGLY ELEGANT CARD PLOT OF 2020!

Imagine being able to toss any small object INTO a playing card. It's now possible with My Assistant!

My Asstistant is a stunning, multi-phase card routine that you will love to perform.

A card is freely chosen and signed by the spectator and then lost in the middle of the deck.

THE MOST VISUAL AND STARTLINGLY ELEGANT TRICK OF 2020. A random card is inserted in the deck but remains visible. You introduce a small ladybug as your assistant to find the selected card. The ladybug is thrown and visually penetrates the card to be printed on it.

Then the ladybug moves onto a card in the middle of the deck. This is the selected and signed card!

Before giving the card as a souvenir, you will extract the ladybug from the card held by the spectator.

My Assistant can be customized with other small objects : die, coin, bill, figurine, etc. (not included).

Once you have learned the method, your imagination will be your only limit !

😍 (Preorder- Ships 3/9) CLEAR MYSTERY by Himitsu Magic 😍
by Murphys Magic starting at $38.99

I believe everyone has seen the classic building block puzzle magic. In this effect, the magician shows the building block puzzle and completes it piece by piece. But when the puzzle is completed, another piece of the block appears. And when the puzzle is completed again and the block appeared again, of course, magic. The puzzle is pieced together again! But what is incredible is not that the magician has a way to put the extra blocks into the original puzzle, but that this complete puzzle, which has been added with two blocks, can actually be put into the original box, which is not scientific! But Hush fans must break through and break through. Under this ancient and classic magic secret, Hush fans have done this a whole new way. You will no longer need to cover up and exhaust all kinds of methods to make the building blocks disappear (I believe this is in the magic circle -- already a public secret). You can even show the box to the audience for inspection -- it can't be enlarged or reduced!

Let me organize the features of Clear Mystery

* No magnet
* No need for palm blocks
* All done in front of the audience
* Easy to do
* The building blocks can be inspected by the audience
* The box can be checked by the audience
* Quick reset
* 360 degree onlookers

You will receive a complete set of acrylic building blocks + collection boxes + complete and detailed online teaching. After receiving them, you can start performing soon after practicing. Go and surprise your audience!

Hi, did Houdini claim he would rise from the dead 50 years to the day after he died? I'm researching something related to this and so far I have found nothing that shows he made such claim (I know that magicians used to gather at his grave on Halloween for many years). Thank you.
So...how's the museum doing during COVID-19? Hopefully, the museum will still be around if this nightmare ever ends.
I have been to a ton of museums in New York and the Houdini Museum is definitely one I want to check out soon. I hope everyone in the city is staying safe in their homes to avoid the spreading of Covid-19. To keep my mind occupied during this time, I just started a subscription to a movie streaming platform called Film Festival Flix. I just watched this documentary called Deceptive Practice: The Mysteries and Mentors of Ricky Jay, which is about the famous, modern magician, Ricky Jay. The film brings you through his profession, successes, and the world of magic. I would highly recommend subscribing to Film Festival Flix and watching this film as well as all the other amazing movies this platform has to offer.
