A penny for your thoughts? In addition to a melange of penny structures, this quirky, offbeat museum, has a variety of interesting gadgets and knick-knacks. A must-see is the toothpick amusement park, built by San Quentin inmates. Bring a handful of quarters to Musee Mecanique so you can play some of the ancient games, including the miniature antique pinball machines. Visiting the museum is free of charge. Visit the website for more information on these unique exhibits.
I loved Musee Mecanique and I'm a Mom with fourteen kids so I know what's best for my children. I've had tons of experience in the San Francisco Bay Area because my sister lives here with twelve children of her own. We're Mormon, by the way.
