DESCRIPTION

We’re filling the Museum with mystery to celebrate Chicago’s place in American magic. Visit our object theater to discover the story of Greta, a little girl who visits a wonderful store looking for a magician’s secrets. Next door, explore a collection of magical artifacts from across the country that have returned home to Chicago for your amazement and delight. Curious how magic looks in action? Professional magicians roam our halls at set times all summer long, defying viewers with their tricks and tips.

This interactive exhibition invites you to don a magician’s cape and explore the secrets of the craft. From escapology to sleight of hand, you’ll learn tricks that will bewilder your astonished audience. Get practicing—the curtain’s about to rise!
