Getaway Mavens-Best Things to Do in Scranton PA "be prepared to be amazed-Houdini Museum founders, Dorothy Dietrich & Dick Brookz, are well known, & considered "Magic Royalty". Dietrich was coined "The Female Houdini,"-her escapes are legendary, worked with Tony Curtis, & Bill Cosby, .sawed Robert Klein in half on national TV-is the only woman to have done the Bullet Catch stunt, a trick that Houdini refused to do. Dietrich also gained international attention by escaping from a straightjacket hanging upside-down 150 feet off the ground as the rope on which she was suspended was set on fire. (Isla Fisher in the hit movie, "Now You See Me", was based on Dietrich). 3 hour tour/show-parking lot in the back. "

 Pennsylvania Day Trips"great fun for the family" "one of the most unique museums & attractions in the world. Show includes two of the best, nationally known magicians, Dorothy Dietrich & John Bravo"

Philadelphia Inquirer"The Magic of Scranton-Houdini Museum offers memorabilia & a top-notch live act" "using doves, a rabbit, a duck, & two poodles-they pull a boy out of the audience for an amazing levitation trick that my husband is still pondering."

3rd feature story this season on "Mysteries At The Musuem"

We've done the Original Houdini Seance for 30 years on Halloween. We do them in New York City at NY's original Houdini Museum, now in Scranton, PA. Also at his house on 113 St., and at his first home in NYC, etc. Pictured at one of our Houdini seances are magic legends Walter B. Gibson (in overcoat), Dorothy Dietrich, and Milbourne Christopher. Walter, Houdini's ghostwriter & confidant wrote the famous Shadow series and over 2,000 books, many on magic as well as on Houdini. Bess Houdini asked him to continue the Original Houdini Seances when she stopped. He passed on the legacy, responsibility and honor to celebrity magician Dorothy Dietrich, who's on our Board of Directors .Lately 10 or so people have begun to copy us, hoping to cash in, and charging from $25 to $100. Bess Houdini asked the seances not be done for monetary gain. We have NEVER AND WILL NEVER CHARGE AN ADMISSION FEE.
