A Visit to Magic Art Studio and Mini Museum of Magic
Thursday, March 22, 2012
Magic Art Studio
137 Spring Street
Watertown, MA 02472
Have you ever wondered what lurks behind the gated door below the Magic Art Studio sign at 137 Spring St.? This is your chance to find out. Raymond J. Goulet will open his shop/museum/theater for special tours for the Historical Society. Ray has been a professional magician (as Ray Raymond) for over 40 years. The museum, usually available only to historians of magic, collectors and magicians, has many one of a kind pieces, as well as many artifacts previously owned by great magicians. The library is full of fascinating ephemera, including postcards, photos, programs and scrapbooks. The theater is the regular meeting place for several groups "in the business."
Due to the crowded nature of the museum's content, tours will be limited to 7 people each. Tours will be offered at approximately 6:40, 7:30, 7:40 and 8:10 PM. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. Would-be magicians are encouraged to bring along tricks of the trade to entertain those waiting for tours. Parking will be available in the lot at 31 Marshall St., across the street from the Fowle House.
This program is free and open to the public.
