Magicians from around the world have donated magical books, posters, and apparatus to complement Philip Hornans collection of magic. Each display and every item has a magical story that can be told about it, or about the magician who donated it.

Magician's Hall of Fame

Keep the Magic in Life

Formerly, this structure was the Giroux United Church, built in 1904. Its last service was held September 14, 1969. The Magic Museum is the result of our youngest sons dying request for the family to make a special room for all to see and enjoy in his memory of what he enjoyed doing most Magic; not a victim of cancer. With the help of friends and family we have all managed to make a wish come true. May it bring a feeling of Magic in your heart.

Always believe in the magic of your dreams.
