The Secret Room at The Writers’ Museum

About The Secret Room at The Writers’ Museum

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.

Nestled at the bottom of a withdrawn Close, just off the top of the Royal Mile, discover a trove of imagination, ingenuity and magic. What inspired these remarkable authors? Unlock the doors of the Writers’ Museum with magic and illusion.

Ages 10+.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Secret Room at The Writers’ Museum are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
