The history of magic as an art form has been shrouded in mystery in order to protect its secrets, often being handed down verbally from magician to magician. But in this secret museum of Sydney, this history of wonder and knowledge comes to life.
The Australian Museum of Magical Arts is set within the secret walls and corridors of The Magicians Cabaret Theatre. Through personal objects, photos and films, personal mementos, secret plans, books and artefacts, you can learn about the mind of a magician and the fascinating role magic has played in cultures.
This museum may be small, but it is packed with information and inspiration. Not just about revealing secrets. By discovering the role magic has played in movies, in war, even in history, you will also experience not just wonder but the beauty of imagination.
You will feel like you are searching, or travelling for the purpose of discovery.
