Moyse’s Hall Museum has always been known for the mysterious amongst its collections, and Bury itself has a history that is magical... This exhibition offers a window into the art of the illusionist, featuring items used by some the world’s greatest magicians from as early as the 17th Century up to what is considered the golden period of magic in the 1920s, including a pair of handcuffs used by Houdini himself, rare handcrafted stage-used illusions, and an antique trick table once owned by Paul Daniels. Moyse's Hall Museum is putting on this fascinating exhibition exploring the subject of magic and illusion alongside internationally regarded magician, Marco Pusterla. As part of this exhibition, Moyse's are also running a number of special events (plus, there are more magical lectures and events to come, so keep an eye on the website for more details!)
