Museum of Magic (Musée de la Magie) Tours

Museum of Magic (Musée de la Magie)
Founded by magician George Proust in 1993 and filled with curiosities, the Museum of Magic (Musée de la Magie) is one of Paris’ more unusual museums. Housed in an atmospheric 16th-century inn, the eclectic collection includes mind-bending optical illusions, automatons, and magic-related paraphernalia.  

The Basics
Allow around an hour to visit the small museum, where highlights include magic kits and props dating back to the 18th century, as well as interactive exhibits and distorting mirrors. Stick around for one of the live magic shows, included in the ticket price. Combination tickets are available for the Museum of Magic and the neighboring Museum of Automata (Musée des Automates), where you’ll see more than 100 robotic figures, many of them interactive.

Things to Know Before You Go
