The American Museum of Magic in Marshall is the largest magic museum in the United States that is open to the public. It's home to a collection of books, photographs and archival materials related to magic and magicians.
Sara Schultz, the museum's director, said the museum was still hosting tours, but with new COVID-19 protocols in place.
"All visitors are required to wear masks," Schultz said. "We limit the number of people in here, although we have not had a problem overcrowding. It is easy to social distance here."

Before the pandemic, the museum would hold weekly magic shows, something Schultz said she was looking forward to bringing back when it was safe.
"Having magicians perform here is fantastic because it brings all of the history alive," Schultz said. "For some of the community members, this is the first time they have ever seen a magic show. I love looking at their expressions. It’s so neat to see the wonder in their eyes.”
The American Museum of Magic is open Wednesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday noon to 4 p.m.
