Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum

An arcade for the child in all of us! Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum has the distinction of being listed as one of the most unusual museums by the World Almanac! A truly amazing collection of historical and modern arcade games, fortune tellers, automatons, sideshow wonders and curiosities.

Every jail in the USA with a death row, should have at least a few located on every corridoor for the rapists and murderers to play with, so they can get reasdy for their big day with the real version.   ^^^

Had the pleasure of visiting the Mechanical Museum a year back.  Sure enough, old Marvin was walking the floor doing odd jobs the entire time I was there.  The guy takes pride in the whole place, but the pinball machines are extremely well-kept.  The lineup, when I was there, covered at least one game from every decade, 1960-present.  The current lineup includes: TAF, Tron, Transformers, Buckaroo, El Dorado, Elvis, Family Guy, Funhouse, LOTR, Metallica, Star Trek Premium, TSPP and ToM.
