“Learn more about the famous Houdini”

The Harry Houdini Tour & Magic Show is a non-stop wonderful major event in an historic 150 year old refurbished home and is the world’s only building entirely devoted to most famous magician of all time, Harry Houdini, who did many special challenges here. The fun event can take 2 hours or longer. The earlier tours are fuller and longer. A great performing arts attractions event with entertainment, that is amazing, exciting, historic, and family friendly in the Scranton, Wilkes Barre, Pocono, Poconos, Stroudsburg NE PA, Pennsylvania area. It’s a combination history exhibit, theater, & concert space that is fun for both locals and tourists.

If you are in the Scranton area you need to stop here. This place is marvelous! Not only is it the only museum dedicated solely to Harry Houdini, but the tour comes with a magic show preformed by one of the top female magicians in the world, Dorthy Dietrich.

Tours are only in the afternoon. They are open during the week in Summer, but only on the weekends during the rest of the year, unless you are arranging a private large group tour.

If you are lucky enough to be in the area during October they also have a Seance Show in the evenings. You will learn the haunted origins of the home the museum is located in as they attempt to commune with its ghostly inhabitants.
