Audio-Described tour of Smoke and Mirrors

Audio-described tour

Join The Wellcome Collection for a tour of Smoke and Mirrors.

Join Visitor Experience Assistant Sarah Bentley for an audio-described tour exploring how magic works on – and in – your mind. You’ll learn about the mediums who conjured spirits and the psychologists who tried to expose them, the magicians and ‘glamorous assistants’ skilled in misdirection, and the mentalists who use their trickery on our unreliable brains.
