Weclome to Musee Mecanique


Musee Mecanique is located in San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf and is the largest privately owned collection of coin-operated mechanical musical instruments and antique arcade machines in their original working condition. You can play them and have a great time:














And some of us remember thinking that this game was super cool:

Pong
Musee Mecanique is just a cool way to spend a day and play living history.

  6. Wow, what a place. I bet it keeps the maintenance people busy keeping everything running. The old electro-mechanical games were the best.
