I remember going to Niagara Falls when I was 12 yrs old, around 1972. They had the Alfred Hitchcock museum, one of the Madame Tussauds museums, and of course the Houdini Museum. The magic bug hadnt quite bitten fully yet (that would happen in a couple of years, even though a couple of years prior I had a disastrous experience performing a magic trick at a cub scout event, the memory still haunts me to this day!). The Houdini museum, if I remember correctly, was still interesting for 12 yr old boy. Seeing the handcuffs up close was cool. The best part was when we stepped out into the magic shop. My dad didnt want to hang around, but we stayed long enough to see a demonstrator do the plastic paddle trick with the magic hat empty and then a rabbit appears in it. I still remember being blown away by that moment. Good memories. Good times.
