musee mecanique


One of my favorite stops during the San Fran trip was the Musee Mecanique, which is one of the world’s largest privately owned collections of mechanically operated musical instruments and antique arcade machines. (Just a warning, the website is really scary and is not a fair representation of the collection at all.) All of the games and musical instruments were amazing eye candy especially for a designer; amazing typography and imagery…in hind sight I am actually a little disappointed that I didn’t take more photographs. And the best part is there are only 25 cents to play. The collection also contains two miniature portrait booths (aka old school photobooths, not the yucky digital ones) that we posed in for 4 sessions. It was so much fun and just the start of an obsessive hunt to find every photobooth in the city.


Musee Mecanique is a must see if you are visiting San Fran!
