The Chicago History Museum has opened an exhibit celebrating the rich history of magic in the Windy City. 

According to their web site:

We’re celebrating Chicago’s place in American magic. This interactive, family-oriented exhibition invites you to don a magician’s cape, explore the secrets of the craft, learn about magicians who performed in Chicago, and discover the wonders of the magic shop along with Greta, a young girl hoping to learn the secrets of magic.

Curious how magic looks in action? Professional magicians roam our halls, mystifying visitors with their daily Magic performances.

The exhibit runs through August with performances by Danny Orleans, Robert Charles, David Kovac, Jeanette Andrews, Mister Danny, Shawn Masterson & Bill Cook.
