Ask "The Brain " - Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum

    Newer Older

    "The Brain" is one of the animated mechanical fortune tellers at Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum. Marvin has been collecting video games, games of skill, and items such as these ( some date back to 1900, and others were custom built specifically for Marvin ) since 1960. Marvin's opened in 1990, and is listed as one of the 100 most unique museums in the world. Admission is free. My wife and I had a lot of fun here. For more info on this place, go to . Located in Farmington Hills MI, a suburb of Detroit. For the price of a quarter I learned a lot about myself....

      Sounds like fun! Is it a big place? How long did it take to walk through?

      5500 square feet, and jam packed with games. The ceilings are 40 feet high and have original Harry Houdini posters, etc on them.
