Shake hands with Harry Houdini—if his arms aren’t stuck in a straitjacket or handcuffs. Portrayed by Duffy Hudson, Houdini shares his incredible life story, performs illusions with playing cards, and manages to swallow sharp needles. The Summer of Magic continues weekends through August 26 with living historians portraying magicians, escape artists, fortune-tellers, and more marvelous illusionists from the past

* Feast on antipasti, artisanal pastas and paninis at Caffe Storico, the museum's classy but kid-friendly eatery or grab pastries and sandwichs at counter service Parliament Espresso and Coffee. Head down 77th Street for burgers and frozen custard at Shake Shack.
