Unfortunately one of my favorite games to look at was out of order, a woodland animal shoot 'em up type thing that's really hard to play - but the bunnies and foxes are so cute it totally doesn't matter. One of the nicest parts about of all the places we visited was that everything was free! Well, besides our burgers and fries... and the games we played at the Musée... But even so, most of the games are only 1-2 quarters, and there's so many people putting quarters into different machines you can totally stand off to the side and watch and then use your quarters on the really good stuff, like pinball!

If you're interested in visiting the Musée and plan on using the photobooth, my only advice is to make sure you set aside some of your dollar bills before cashing them in for quarters, there's 2 film booths and they don't take quarters! (It's $3 per strip of 4 photos)

Great photos as usual! Gosh, I love antique-y looking things. You've also really made me miss the photobooths my friends and I used to always visit overseas.

I was completely taken back by the awesomeness of this place. I guess someone decided it was a good idea to store all these old coin-operated games and what-have-you's in one place and let the public come by and see the history of past mechanical entertainment right up to current video games.
