What travelers say:

We had a lot of conversation about history as we walked around the machines and it was so much fun. We spent about $10, but I wish we could have brought a few more quarter cents to buy a few machines in the last few minutes. There are plenty of change-changing machines nearby and an ATM near the entrance. The only thing I would say is that when we put the coins in the coin box, several machines broke down, but apparently no signage was seen and we could not find any staff to notify. This may end up costing 3 25 cents a coin, so definitely not so bad that you would not highly recommend this stop on your Pier 39 tour.

Additional Information


Among the docks and seafood shops at Fisherman's Wharf lies the Musee Mecanique, a collection of old-fashioned arcade games and other artifacts maintained in a large warehouse. The collection was initiated by Edward Zelinsky and has been in its current location since 2002, when it was relocated from the Cliff House. Some of the more popular artifacts include "Laffing Sal," the "Carnival," and a number of fortune teller games. Come with a pocket full of quarters and play to your heart's desire.
