About Us

This Magic Museum is a tribute to our remarkable youngest son, Philip Hornan, who passed away from cancer at the tender age of fifteen.  Philip’s Magical Paradise is the result of Philip’s dying request for his family to make a special room for all to see and enjoy what he enjoyed doing most:  Magic.

Magicians from around the world have donated magical books, posters, and apparatus to complement Philip’s collection of magic.  Each display and every item has a magical story that can be told about it, or about the magician who donated it – like the fifty cent piece that once belonged to the great Harry Houdini or the R.C.M.P. jail cell from which Philip and his close friend, Dean Gunnarson, escaped.

With the help of family and friends, and with your support, we continue to make Philip’s wish come true.  May your visit bring you a warm feeling of Magic in your heart.

The Hornan Family
