The American Museum of Magic, located in Marshall, MI, John Bellairs' hometown. The museum was founded on April 1, 1978 by the late Robert Lund, a Detroit-area writer and editor who was an obsessed collector of magic artifacts, with the assistance of his wife, the late Elaine Lund. It’s the largest public magic museum in the United. The collection is extensive, including both famous and obscure magicians. The museum celebrates the art of magic and the devotion of magicians to their craft.
