Now, I don't think they've found the original Automaton from The Master Mystery. I think it's more likely they've acquired John Gaughan's terrific "working" reproduction that he created for the 2015 Los Angeles Magic History Conference. That's exciting. But what I'm even more excited about is this "new venue" and what sounds like a major expansion of the museum. "Several hundred new items!?" This is good.
When I know more, so will you.
You can check out photos and film of John Gaughan's Automaton in action below.
UPDATE: Houdini Museum of New York moves to new location.
