Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum Makes For Magical Moments

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Parents, your kids may soon be putting down the video games and begging to go to the museum.

Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum, in Farmington Hills, Michigan, is dedicated to mechanical masterpieces from the 1920s through today.

According to museum founder Marvin Yagoda, parents have told him that their kids want to live in his museum because of the 500 machines and wall adornments, including everything from pinball machines, fortune telling machines, giant clocks, driving video games, and photo booths.

He says, “Moms have told me it’s cathartic for their children. They say, ‘We’ll go to the museum, but only after you use the restroom.’”

And it seems children aren’t the only ones finding joy with the multiple metal machines.

Yagoda claims some of his regular patrons include Eminem and David Copperfield, and he considers the celebrities his good friends.
