Mr. Selfish and I are not huge fans of Fisherman’s Wharf. Since it tends to be overrun with tourists looking for sourdough bread, we generally avoid the area. However, on one fine day, we took a leisurely stroll through North Beach and ended up at Fisherman’s Wharf.
It was a lovely day, and we enjoyed the clear view of Alcatraz from the Wharf.
Then, we visited the Musée Mécanique, which I had read about online. The musée is a for-profit museum full of old time penny arcade games and machines. It features over 300 old mechanical machines, and admission is free.
Mr. Selfish and I found some of the machines to be a little creepy.
Nevertheless, it was a worthwhile endeavor. If you ever find yourself in Fisherman’s Wharf, you should stop by the Musée Mécanique.
