See the acclaimed Houdini exhibit at the Skirball! (SOLD OUT)
Please join us for an afternoon at the Skirball for a docent-led tour of the Houdini exhibit!

Magician, escape artist, and showman extraordinaire Harry Houdini (1874–1926) has remained an object of fascination for generations. Combining biographical and historical artifacts with contemporary art inspired by his physical audacity and celebrity, Houdini: Art and Magic explores Houdini as an individual and an enduring cultural phenomenon.

Featuring more than 150 objects—including film clips, stunning period posters, dramatic theater ephemera, rare photographs, original props (including a straitjacket, milk can, and Metamorphosis Trunk used by Houdini), and the work of select avant-garde artists—the exhibition reveals Houdini’s legacy as an iconic figure.

This is a YCLA Family event but we recommend it for slightly older children (8 or 9+).

Price: $10 per adult and $7 per child.
