In this special edition of the Museum’s ever popular RitLab (Ritual Laboratory), visitors can immerse themselves in a multitude of Chanukah-Houdini inspired activities.

Pop into an Art Flash Gallery Chat on Houdini: Art and Magic – a new short format gallery talk for curatorial insights. Or, if you’re in a D-I-Y mood, create sophisticated and magically-inspired gifts including magic card wallets, monkey-fist key chains, and mysterious thaumatropes. Last, but not least, on this third night of Chanukah, join a dreidel spin-off! The Museum café is open during this event.
