A spoonful of Uri: Inside Tel Aviv’s newest magical museum
Visiting a museum entirely dedicated to Uri Geller, created by Uri Geller, and presented through a live guided tour by Uri Geller, had never been on my to-do list. During your brief holiday visit to Israel, you also may not have considered this possibility. If not, you should definitely reconsider, because this is the weirdest and most unusually engaging exhibition you’re likely to see in Israel.
When Uri invited me for a chat and a private tour of his shrine to all things mystical, supernatural and paranormal, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Getting out of my taxi in Jaffa I found myself confronted with a 15-metre-long ‘bent’ steel spoon sculpture immediately outside his museum, which is housed in a beautifully renovated Ottoman-era soap factory.
Uri bounded out to meet me, pointing out the massive spoon, in case I’d missed it. “Under the spoon, I have a huge bronze plaque,” he explained, “in which I put Albert Einstein’s spoon, the Torah, the ten commandments, the Quran, the Hindi scripts. Everything is there! And there is a message that if you touch the palms of my hands, my hands are on the plaque, it’ll bring you positive energy.”
We’re not even inside the museum and Uri is in full flow. He’s 76 years old but with the energy and vitality of a teenager who forgot to take his Ritalin.

"Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity."

"The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues."

"The Geller Effect is one of those "para" phenomena which changed the world of phusics. What the most outstanding physicists of the last decades of this country colud grasp only as theoretical implication, Uri brought as fact into everyday life.."

"Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind"
"I Have watched Uri Geller... I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again."
