The Harry Houdini Museum has been in Scranton for nine years, and open to the general public for four years in the Scranton/Pocono area. Prior to that a part of the exhibit was on display for 13 years at the famous Magic Towne House in New York City. The Magic Towne House was the location of the Harry Houdini Seances in New York. New York City was where Harry Houdini lived for most of his life, until his death.
Although these have been called "seances" by many, it was really meant as a scientific test between Harry Houdini, his wife and friends. Some of magicıs most famous personalities have attended previous seances held by the museum including :
Dorothy Dietrich, considered one of the world's leading experts on Harry Houdini, as well as a world re- nowned female magician and escape artist. She has appeared on many major TV specials including a star- ring role in a Home Box Office Special tribute to Harry Houdini hosted by Tony Curtis, who played Harry Houdini in the film biography, 'You Asked For It," a Bill Cosby Special, The Tom Snyder Show and many others. She also appears in Atlantic City and Las Vegas.
Famous author Walter B. Gibson, author of "The Shadow." He was also a Harry Houdini biographer, ghostwriter, confidant of Harry Houdini and his wife Bess. He was the only one to have ever seen Harry Houdini's "secret notes" before they disappeared. Harry Houdini's wife asked him to carry on the "seances." Before he died he asked Dorothy Dietrich to carry on the tradition of the yearly tributes to Harry Houdini called by many "seances."
Milbourne Christopher, magic historian, and writer of several books on Harry Houdini attended most of the New York "Harry Houdini Seances" at New York's Magic Towne House before he passed away.
John Bravo, well know magician, editor and publisher of Hocus Pocus Magazine, with many TV and club appearance to his credit. He is also a director of The Harry Houdini Museum.
It should be noted, Harry Houdini never said he was coming back, or that he would open handcuffs at a seance, etc. He was the exposer of the very people who claimed they could get messages from dead relatives, make their ghosts appear, etc. He said such things were in his experience not possible, but being the greatest escape artist/magician that ever lived he, Harry Houdini, would try to escape from the beyond. He is credited with putting this whole area of racketeering out of business. After ten years of no results his wife Bess sent out a letter to participants saying "since the failure of the ten year TEST, it is my opinion that all concerned have struck a mighty world wide blow at superstition." They are now done as a tribute to the great artist, but who knows? Being one of the greatest publicity artists of all time, he could return via the Internet. He would have loved it.
The Harry Houdini Museum has been In Scranton for 10 years, and open to the general public for five years in the Scranton/Pocono area. New York City was the location of the previous Halloween Harry Houdini Seances held in New York City, where Harry Houdini lived most of his life. Many famous magicians attended including Milbourne Christopher and Walter B. Gibson. According to Walter Harry Houdini's wife asked him to carry on the Halloween seances and Walter, asked magician Dorothy Dietrich to carry them on as a tribute to Harry Houdini on several occasions before he passed away.
