The Official Houdini Seance

Articles like these have appeared in papers over the last twenty years since master magician John Bravo presided over the Official Houdini Seances in New York City with such magic greats as Walter B. Gibson and Milbourne Christopher.

The Houdini Museum has been In Scranton for 10 years, and open to the general public for five years in the Scranton/Pocono area. Prior to that a part of the exhibit was on display for 13 years at the famous Magic Towne House in New York City. The Magic Towne House was the location of the Houdini Seances held in New York City, where Houdini lived most of his life. Many famous magicians attended including Milbourne Christopher and Walter B. Gibson. According to Walter Houdini's wife asked him to carry on the seances and Walter, asked magician Dorothy Dietrich to carry them on as a tribute to Houdini on several occasions before he passed away.
