A non-profit social order devoted to the advancement of magic. Its clubhouse is the famed Magic Castle, one of the most unique private clubs in the world.

The AMA was started in April 1951 by William W. Larsen, Sr., whom subscribers to his magazine Genii became instant members. But the organization faded away when Bill Larsen Sr. passed away at the age of 48 in 1955.

In 1961, when Bill Larsen Sr.'s younger son, Milt Larsen, started creating the Magic Castle there was no club. He convinced his brother Bill Larsen Jr. that it would be a good time to resurrect the Academy of Magical Arts. The first members were again Genii subscribers.

There are several types of membership:

  • MAGICIAN (REGULAR) MEMBERS
  • ASSOCIATE MEMBERS
  • HONORARY LIFE MEMBERSHIPS and VIP MEMBERSHIPS
  • JUNIOR MEMBERSHIPS

There is an annual Academy of Magical Arts Award Show and Banquet. The highest award given is the Masters Fellowship.
