Notice from the Welcome Collection:
Smoke and Mirrors: The Psychology of Magic - Exhibition
11 April 2019—15 September 2019

Coming soon

What can magic and conjuring tell us about the human mind? Our new exhibition brings together the worlds of psychology
and entertainment in search of the truth about deception.

Explore how our biases affect our perception and whether our senses can be hacked.
Discover spirit photography, magic props and psychology experiments to see how magic works on – and in – the mind of the spectator.

Artefacts on display from the world of magic include the head of the gorilla costume worn by Derren Brown, Harry Houdini’s ‘Bell Box’,
Tommy Cooper’s fez, and Paul Daniels’s sawing-in-half box.

An accompanying live performance programme explores what magic reveals about the nature of perception
and how psychologists have used conjuring to understand the appeal of the ‘supernatural’. Performances will take place:

Tuesdays 13.30 and 14.30
Thursdays 18.30 and 19.30
Saturdays 11.30 and 12.30
Free admission
