  • Nice, interesting, learn something new, and enjoy with children. Nice magic show at the end. Spend the hour of fun.  more »
  • The tour consists of a show and guided tours of the museum. Mr. Magician probably reads in the minds of:) A great illusionistic show, it is worth visiting this place. I am very pleased with the accident:)

  • One of the most interesting places if you love magic or Houdini. The wonder, David Merlini is a wonderful person and we had the pleasure to meet and speak with him. There is a little magic show that was funny and interesting for the kids and a small Houdini museum with a short tour. We really enjoyed it and recommend to visit.
  • The magic show at the end was just amazing, he had some really good tricks. If I could give 1 piece of advise, the trick with 'splitting' the red and black cards and bringing the colors back together shouldn't be at the end. Other tricks had better 'wow' factor and would suit better to end the show. The Houdini part was a bit short but complete and interesting.
