If you’ve ever seen the Princess Diaries you’ll remember that scene where Anne Hathaway takes Julie Andrews for a corn dog, a few pictures in a photobooth and then arm wrestles the below opponent in a vintage arcade in San Francisco.

This place is called The Musee Mecanique and it houses around 200 old style penny arcade games. It is actually a privately owned collection that is on display for free, however if you want to play a coin fee is required.

Located in Fisherman’s Wharf those of any age visiting San Francisco should definitely consider stopping by. The vast array of vintage games transports you temporarily to the simpler times of the early 20th century when a basic penny arcade game was peak amusement, and to be perfectly honest still is today.
