Detroit called me for a few days of work and I had time to stop at Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum. It was a store front in the same plaza as a Buffalo Wild Wings's but it didn't disappoint!
It was stuffed to the gills with coin-operated animatronic dummies, mechanical games and other oddities. It was especially neat to see all the intricate wooden carving and inner workings of the one-of-a-kind machines.
Passed on this
Neat drawings of how some of the wooden items were made:
You can see another of the wooden, handmade coin operated oddities here.I went to the Henry Ford Museum in the same trip, and you can see the pic from that here...
