The Magic Circle Museum, as its name may suggest, is a museum specialising in the field of magic and run by the Magic Circle (Britain’s professional organisation dedicating to promoting the art of stage magic).
Located in the Magic Circle Building near Euston Station, it has things for the whole family to enjoy. You’ve got props and magic tricks used by famous conjurers. Photos showing important moments in magic history. And a collection which mostly notably includes such important artifacts as:
Props used by Tommy Cooper and David Nixon in television shows
A sound recording of Harry Houdini from an Edison cyclinder
An original Sooty puppet by original creator Harry Corbett.
Heck, there’s even some cups and balls used by the Prince of Wales when he applied to join the circle in 1975! So if you’re interested in conjuring, magic tricks or stage magic history in general, check this place out.
Entrance is by appointment only, so contact the society for more information on how to book a visit.
