Sidney Radner died last year at the age of 91. He auctioned off much of his collection in 2004, but held on to a few precious items. Sidney's son, William Radner, now controls the Houdini-Radner rarities that are to be displayed.
The museum will host a special opening night reception featuring roving magicians on Friday, September 14 from 6 to 8pm. Tickets to this special event are $10. Regular admission to the gallery is $3.
The Wistariahurst Museum is located at 238 Cabot St., Holyoke, MA 01040. It was the site of last year's Official Houdini Seance. Visit their official website for more information.
