Unusual collections of the Museum of Magic
For example, “soaring on the air” is the illusion of Robert-Uden. It was first introduced in the mid-19th century. During the performance, Robert-Uden’s son hovered over the stage. The “magic chair of Buitiers de Colt” is very popular too. Anyone who sat on it would certainly dissolve in the air. And, of course, the “Howard Thorston Man Cutting Table” is very well-known. The magician amazed the audience, sawing his assistant in half. And as proof, he threw two halves of the table in different directions.
In the Museum of Magic you will also find mirrors for optical illusions and unusual attributes that were used by magicians of different times. These are magic wands, magic balls, caskets with secrets, equipment to summon spirits and others. During a visit to the museum a short show is performed for you. Here you need to guess the mechanism of several illusions. The performance is staged in French, but this will not be an obstacle to your immersion in the mysterious world of magic and tricks.
