The excellent new official website is also now live. Tickets to visit the museum can be booked there.
The House of Houdini is located at at 11 Dísz Square, within the walls of the Buda Castle, just steps away from the Royal Palace on the Buda side of the Danube River. The museum is open Monday to Sunday from 9:30am to 7pm.
