Greater Houston Skeptic Society Message Board › New Meetup: Magic: The Science of Wonder
Announcing a new Meetup for Greater Houston Skeptic Society!
What: Magic: The Science of Wonder
When: February 27, 2010 1:00 PM
Houston Museum of Natural Science
One Hermann Circle Drive
Houston, TX 77030
The Houston Museum of Natural Science presents Magic: The Science of Wonder beginning February 26. (See link for details). Many prominent skeptics began their careers as magicians - James Randi, Richard Wiseman, D.J. Grothe, Penn & Teller. Magic can inform us about the way people are deceived, or deceive themselves.
" Among the many intriguing artifacts to be featured are torches for fire eating; magic lanterns and automatons; Harry Houdini's trademark milk can and water escape trunk; Harry Blackstone's "Zig Zag Girl" prop; Mike Caveney’s linking coat hangers; and items from the acts of Doug Henning, Penn & Teller, and other superstars of magic."
Due to the cost, I am posting this as a meetup to see if enough people are interested in attending as a group. The tickets may be purchased through the link above. Please note that the museum has specific times for slots for buying a ticket.
Please do not RSVP *Yes* unless you have already purchased a ticket, or definitely plan to attend.
Public - Adult $27.00
Public - Child $22.00
Public - Senior (62+) $22.00
Museum members - $15.00
