Historic Treasure

Our Take

Whether you think of it as a museum where you can play with all of the exhibits or as the world's coolest vintage arcade, the Musee Mecanique is an utterly charming, ridiculously delightful trip back in time. Bring a pocketful of quarters and enjoy the actually addicting games and groan-worthy toilet humor. And make sure to say hi to Laffing Sal, an automaton from the 1920s that makes Annabelle look like Barbie.
