Maison de la Magie Robert-Houdin will try to fool you with trickery, hocus-pocus, and magic, but you'll never be fooled by machines, installations, pictures, and music. Amusing museum installations pair science with superstition to test your ability to recognize reality, while feats of balance and skill honors jugglers of the Middle Ages in the Greek temple room. You may be surprised to recognize notable figures in magic's history including the 18th century physicist and magician, Joseph Pinetti Willedall de Merci, and genius inventor, Buatier De Kolta.

It's not your eyesight and you're not losing your mind-- there really is a life-sized "hallucinoscope" there. Depicting the literary worlds of Jules Verne, you'll swear your eyes are deceiving you as you navigate "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea." Your children will love the chessboard of optical illusions, the optics and electricity used to conjure magical craft, and the mysterious clock.

  • A magical place for kids and grown-ups. A lot of things to see and understand, and two spectacles. Don't forget to look a the dragons outside every half an hour!
  • The spectacle is great to watch, also for adults. Also the people who work there are nice. But the rest of the museum is a disappointment, only in French and not very interesting. Would not recommend.
