Nights: Dusk Tour
Experience the museum of magic in a whole new light – in the depths of darkness!
Dusk tours of the museum of magic, which is set within secret walls of a magicians theatre gives visitors access to the building while it is at its most atmospheric.
Led by the magician, those being shown around can feel and think like a magician as they are exposed to secrets of magic – secrets that have been handed down verbally from magician to magician through the centuries. You may even be asked to jump into a trap door, a secret device or an illusion; after all you are now in his “chamber”.
The Dusk Tour first opens with a quick light and informal bite along with a drink of the magician’s favourite wine as you enjoy a fleeting 18th century magic show. Then this rare chance to see hidden magic treasures and hear untold mysteries by candlelight inside Australia’s only museum of magic in a very different way with a themed guided tour under a gloaming sky commences.
Upon your journey completion you are welcome to join the magician at his Top Hat Bar. Here you can ask him questions and you may even learn a trick. Otherwise you can just relax and order a drink.
The most fun you have ever had at a Museum!
