  • This is the go-to place in Fisherman's Wharf and is really the only reason I go there. You can easily and happily spend $20 on the old arcade games you played as a child; it is a lot of fun showing younger kids the old games. The antique games are quite a bit of fun and the very antique dioramas are well worth a few extra quarters here and there. This is my top recommendation for things to do with kids on SF.

  • Absolutely LOVE this place. A Must visit of places in San Francisco. Being a gamer from the 70's I Really appreciate the collection of machines put together here. I also love the old piano/orchestra machines, the strongarm sideshow man (disappointed that they put a padded glove on his hand though!!), and the history that is in this place. Don't leave San Francisco without visiting. You won't be disappointed.

  • Always a fun time with all the old time machine play.... Precursor to modern video games! History and fun all mixed together. Loved the 🥊 boxing game and old time mechanical baseball game. Watching the mechanical wrestler beat my son? Priceless!!

  • Pop culture paradise. Fun, free museum with tokens for game play. Both nostalgic and educational. Great place to take pics. The whole family enjoyed it. Got to see the inner workings of player pianos and automatons and get the imagination going. Took lots of video to share with our FIRST robotics team.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed the arcade! Numerous arcade games of yesteryear...turn of the century, that is, turn of the twentieth century. Actual working games you can play. Insert one or two quarters, and entry is free to boot. Mechanical crank and lever operated games, pinball, and how about a short early movie segment viewed through a zoetrope device. Ever seen a steam engine motorcycle, in perfect working condition? I even even enjoyed a game of Asteroids! I shall need more visits here.
