Press release about the World's only ongoing Houdini traveling exhibit

An award was given by the US Postmaster to the directors of the Harry Houdini Museum exhibit, Dorothy Dietrich and Dick Brookz for their success in helping promote the Harry Houdini stamp,


We've done the Original Harry Houdini Seance here LIVE online for 15 years on Halloween. We did them for 15 years in New York City which was Houdini's official home town as an adult. Pictured at one of our Harry Houdini seances are magic legends Walter B. Gibson (in overcoat), Dorothy Dietrich, and Milbourne Christopher. Walter, Harry Houdini's ghostwriter & confidant wrote the famous Shadow series and over 2,000 books, many on magic as well as on Houdinifrom the escape artists notes. Bess Houdini asked him to continue the Harry Houdini seances when she stopped. He passed on the legacy, responsibility and honor to celebrity magician Dorothy Dietrich, who's on our Board of Directors.

We have developed a roof leak and some items may be at risk. We had to move the huge framed pictures of Houdini's mom and dad from his home to another area. We need your help.
