The American Museum of Magic is in Marshall, Michigan. It is one of the largest magic museum open to the public. The museum houses the collection of late Robert Lund who co-founded the Museum with his wife Elaine. The library is open for research and studies.

The museum is built around Lund's collection of posters, playbills, books, photos, apparatus, scrapbooks, letters and thousands of other pieces of magic memorabilia and ephemera. The first building opened to the public April 1, 1978. A second building, the vacated former Marshall Public Library, was purchased in 1999. Since Elaine Lund's passing in 2006 the museum operates governed by a board of directors and is a non-profit corporation.
