view web site ›'s insider take:

Bring quarters (or dollars for the change machine) so that you can fully enjoy this bizarre collection of historic arcade games housed at this wacky museum on Fisherman's Wharf. At the entrance stands Laffing Sal, a gap-toothed six-foot mannequin whose raucous cackle will haunt you as you explore further. Perhaps you'll ask the Sex Appeal Meter to rate your attractiveness, or maybe you'll test your strength on the Arm Wrestle Machine. Kids will love the clockwork farm, where 50 cents activates a host of tiny moving people and animals.

Open Mondays through Fridays 10 am to 7 pm, Saturdays and Sundays 10 am to 8 pm.
