Disclaimer: while admission to Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum in Farmington Hills is free, you might want to bring along a sack of quarters!
Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum is something of a hidden gem in Metro Detroit. It's located in Farmington Hills and houses a huge collection of coin-operated machines. Everything from pinball machines to modern video games to historic hand-crafted novelties can be found at Marvin's.
The museum was featured in the History Channel series Modern Marvels, and the segment can be viewed below on Youtube!
The owner, Marvin Yagoda, has been collecting coin-operated contraptions for over 50 years. Several of his machines are one-of-a-kind, and it's a display that's . . . well, marvelous!
Check out the site that I've linked above, and consider paying a visit to this one-of-a-kind Michigan attraction!
