Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum

This can't be anything but amazing...
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.

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...
