Free with Museum Admission
Recommended for all ages

Be amazed by Adam RealMan, sideshow and variety performer, and his special tribute to Houdini’s escape acts. Practice how escape artists warm-up, take a look behind the curtain to see  how magicians free themselves from restraints, and marvel as Adam escapes a straitjacket, rope, and handcuffs!

This summer, New York’s magical past comes to life every weekend from June 23 – August 26! Meet magicians, escape artists, fortune-tellers, and more marvelous illusionists from the past—all brought to life by Living Historians from the present.
