Musée Mécanique

After walking to the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory, I continued my self lead city walk to Musée Mécanique in Fisherman’s Wharf. It’s pretty much the only reason for someone who lives here to go to Fisherman’s Wharf.  Admission is free to see this impressive collection of antique coin operated machines dating back to the turn of the 20th century. Many of the machines were acquired from Playland amusement park on Ocean Beach. Oh how I wish I could have gone to Playland, The Cliff House and Sutro Baths in their heyday! A gal can dream.  Luckily, you can live vicariously through playing the arcade games. Most of them are only a quarter for one play.
