Explore untold mysteries in the Secret Room, where performances are intricately linked to a magician’s interpretation of the colourful history of some of Edinburgh’s hidden historical buildings. Magicians dig deep into their exciting, intriguing and often dark histories, and unearth the little mysteries and unknown secrets. These are then illustrated with magic, illusion and of course sleight of hand.
The final resting place of the work and artefacts of Scotland’s most lavished writers; Robert Burns, Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson. And most recently, temporary home to JK Rowling’s hand drawn edition of Harry Potter.
Nestled at the bottom of a withdrawn Close, just off the top of the Royal Mile, discover a trove of imagination, ingenuity and magic. Our magician’s have created performances inspired by the work and lives of these remarkable authors. Unlock the doors of the Writers’ Museum with magic and illusion.
“Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive!”
Sir Walter Scott
