Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum
31005 Orchard Lake Road, Farmington Hills, MI 48334
Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum houses a collection of coin-operated animatronic dummies, mechanical games and other oddities. Exhibits include the classic gypsy Fortune teller machine that used to grace many a carnival sideshow. Most of the machines still function, so visitors are encouraged to bring change. Amongst the collection is P.T. Barnum's version of the Cardiff Giant and one of Sing Sing Prison's Electric Chairs in which 30 people died. Tally Hall, a rock band from nearby Ann Arbor, has titled an album after the museum.
