Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum

If I’m ever in Michigan, Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum will be on my itinerary.

“Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum is known from coast to coast, like butter and toast. From headlines to bedlines, from school rooms to pool rooms, this place is like no other that can be found in the contiguous United States and other environs of the free world.”

The museum contains items of magic, neon, antiques, posters, airplanes, robots, animation, and all sorts of odd and unusual coin operated games. The coin operated games are the main attraction, and range from the oldest gypsy fortune telling machine of the early 1900’s, to the lastest video games. All the games are operational.

There is so much fun stuff to explore on the website alone…I can only imagine how interesting it would be in person!

    this hardly does it justice, but if you are ever in madison, ella’s deli is a must. not only for the insane animatronics EVERYWHERE, but the turkey reuben and the butterscotch ice cream sundae, which is literally bigger than my head.

    I’ve been there! I used to live down the street from it. It’s amazing!

    Well, it’s been 9 years- have you come to visit? It’s hard to say whether Marvin’s is exactly the same as when you were looking it up..or completely different. The place is kind of ethereal.
