Experience the entertainment of the past at Musee Mecanique, while interacting with Ed Zelinsky’s personal collection of 20th-century penny arcade games, music boxes, photo booths, and other coin-operated wonders. The museum pays homage to this impressive assortment that he began at the age of 11 and continued to add to throughout his life. Now grown to hundreds of antique machines, it is one of the largest of its type in the world. Although entrance is free, be sure to bring your spare change so you can try your luck out on some of the games. Our San Francisco trip itinerary builder site makes visiting Musee Mecanique and other San Francisco attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Love this place so much! It has arcade games that you no longer see anywhere else, and you can actually play with it. They also have many vintage/historical artifacts that are still working well. It's very interesting to see what people used to do as a form of entertainment. This place is so fascinating and definity a gem. Remember to bring a lot of quarters (or cash that you can exchange for quarters), as the games only accept quarters (and some, dimes).
Omg we had such a great time here! Video game arcade games from my childhood, pinball machines, photo booths, interactive and coin operated machines, and carnival like machines of all types are here! Everything pretty much a quarter or .50 cents. Took me back to the time. Had a blast. A great way to pass time for a few hours. Laughing Sal was here!!!
