When was the last time you walked into a museum and were encouraged to touch everything?

Musee Mecanique is a hidden gem at San Francisco's touristed Fisherman's Wharf. It's as strange as it is interactive, and one heck of a lot of fun. In a seaside hangar, you'll find an incredible collection of 19th and 20th-century penny arcade games — all ready to be played.

When visitors are looking for something truly unique, I send them here. Bring lots of quarters (though there's a cash-to-coin machine if you forget), and if you have any questions, look for the guy on roller-skates.

Watch the video to see what I mean.
