Coin-operated nostalgia

Now how much do you like playing arcade games? Today, I’m taking you to the Musée Mécanique to play on a different kind of machines… the old kind.

From old clowns to little airplanes and marionettes, this privately owned Zelinsky Collection takes you to a different era of fun. The museum is located at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco and welcomes you in for free. You can play on most of the machines for ¢25 or ¢50.

And for those who don’t understand the nostalgia, there are a few modern games all the way in the back. But just so you know, that’s not the point of this amazing place. You’ll see over 200 pieces of fine machinery ranging from mechanical musical instruments to antique arcade machines in their original working condition.
