Professional magician and magic collector Rory
Feldman and his board of trustees aim to amaze with the Museum of Magic.
This museum, which was granted a provisional charter in April of 2007, has been a
long-term goal of Feldman, a native New Yorker who has been performing since
the age of seven and collecting since the age of 11. A major collector of
magic memorabilia, Feldman, now 31, owns an extensive collection pertaining
to renowned magician
Howard Thurston (1869–1936), considered one of the
greatest magicians of all time.
Through the Museum of Magic, Feldman seeks to
share the conjuring arts with the world. The museum will preserve and
display magic objects and artifacts, while educating and entertaining the
public. The exhibits and displays planned for the museum include “How Magic
Changed History,” “Magic in New York,” “Magic in the Movies,” “The Life and
Times of Howard Thurston,” and “Houdini”—an exhibit featuring props that
Harry Houdini used in his famous escape performances. All exhibits and
displays will feature either a live or taped magic performance. The museum
will also host lectures, film screenings, and performances by top magicians,
magic historians, and authors in the field.
“Keep your eyes on us at all times,” says Feldman.
The mission of
is to provide an
interactive museum experience. The museum preserves and displays
magic artifacts; celebrates and promotes the conjuring arts, all while
educating and entertaining the public. The museum will be a place of
amazement, education, and discovery.
