Join renowned mentalist Kent Axell in the Tredwell family’s Greek Revival double parlor as he takes us back in time 150 years to experience mind reading, magic, and mystery. 

In the mid-19th century, New Yorkers like the Tredwells hosted neighbors and friends in their home to showcase the latest in mysticism and psychic entertainments.

Spiritualism, the belief that the living can talk to the dead, had become a phenomenon in 1848 thanks to the now-infamous Fox sisters and grew as a popular form of parlor entertainment. Whether he answers your sealed questions, reads your mind — or controls it — you’re guaranteed to feel the haunting touch of one of history’s most obscure, and awe-inspiring, art forms.



$40, $50 VIP Seats (first two rows), $30 MHM Members.
