Welcome to the Musée Mécanique, one of the world's largest (over 200) privately owned collection of coin-operated mechanical musical instruments and antique arcade machines in their original working condition. (You can play them!)
Check out the awesome antique mechanical games at Musee Mechanique. Also, killer vintage arcade games: Spy Hunter, Moon Patrol, Star Wars & Addams Family pinball rule.
Go to the Musee Mechanique and get your fortune told.
Screw MUNI. Spend your quarters here!
Stick a penny into "Susie the Can-Can Dancer"!
Bring dollar bills to convert into quarters. You'll want to play a lot of these. Especially the one where Uncle Sam tells you how dateable you are based on your handshake.
Try the Opium Den!
Learn about history of entertainment in America & San Francisco
Yup, the place from the Princess Diaries. And no, I'm not ashamed I know that.
Some of the fortune telling machines also double as Musee Mechanique souvenirs with the name printed on the cards.
The chopper game, along the wall near the back, is so fun.
Skeeball fanatics and pinball wizards, this one’s for you. This arcade mecca is free to get in, and most machines cost 25 cents to play.
Go to the area with foosball tables but skip those and try out a few rounds of slot hockey!
This is always on my "to-do" list for anyone visiting San Francisco....antique "arcade" games and carnival games...love it!
Bring a lot of quarters
Awesome old school quarter machines. Totally worth a look. You will definitely find a machine that is worth the coins for it.
Be sure to watch the Cowboy Silent Films!
Play a game. Most only cost a quarter.
It’s a bar with an arcade near fisherman’s warf
Free to walk through, great old games you can actually play, plus instruments
Dude Princess Diaries was filmed here! You gotta go!
These games are older then you will ever be! Play gently!
More antique coin operated machines, toys, games and animatronics than you’ve ever seen, bring quarters.
Lots of old-timey peeping booths and moving puppets! (if you're into that sort of thing....)
A hidden gem that's otherwise surrounded by avoidable tourist traps, the Musee Mecanique is a trip back in time, and one that doesn't cost you an arm and a leg to enjoy.
This is pure joy. Old Arcade museum right on the water.
Loved it! Go get your fortune read...
Favorite tourist attraction in SF. Laughing Sal is terrifying and the photo booths are great! Don't forget to press some pennies.
Don't miss Laughing Sal.
Dance along with the music from orchestra and piano box
A lot of mechanical pianos and other musical machines. Great experience of old games and fun predictions from "famous" fortune-tellers
Bring quarters or bills!
Cool place with awesome oldschool stuff!
The star wars game in the back is awesome!
Bring a lot of quarter coins to play in all the machines, they also have a automatic piano and a foot massager.
Spend all your quarters in this nice place full of old game machines!
A w e s o m e! I loved playing video games as a kid. I love being able to play games dating back to the early 1900's as well. Plus there's laughing Sal. You can't go wrong here!
They've got a machine that will turn your bills into quarters you can use on the games.
Free entry, bring quarters for the games. Lots of cool vintage arcade games as well as some newer ones
Super cool hidden gem if you like old stuff
BRING QUARTERS. Get your fortune told, too.
Definitely get a fortune. It's a wonderful keepsake and tons of fun!
Bring quarters and check out the macabre games
Must visit while in sf. Free to walk in..cheap to play... you can see in 10 minutes or stay to play.
Una sorpresa al final del paseo de la bahia de SF.
¿Entramos a ese galpón? ¡Sí! Es un arcade vintage divino.
