Musée Mécanique will take you back to the days when a penny and a nickel was all it took to play games at the town carnival or beach boardwalk. Laffing Sal, a funhouse character from the early 1900s, waits to greet you by the door of this one-of-a-kind museum, but there are over 300 antique and unique objects to explore once inside. Edward Galland Zelinsky, owner of the museum until passing away in 2004, started collecting coin-operated machines, tiny pianos, and rarities when he was only eleven years old. Today, Musée Mécanique's collection of games is extensive and impressive and all you have to do is bring your spare change to enjoy it.
