What a great assortment of games that span over several decades. It's fun to play old favorites, especially pinball, and to see how creepy-cool some of the very old games could be. This is a great stop after having a quick nosh on the pier.

We almost didn't go to this because we were running out of time in our short trip but I am so glad we stopped in! The historical games were so fun and kind of crazy! They have all sorts of things to play with and do, everyone will be able to find something to do in here.

Forget everything else on Fisherman's Wharf and come straight here. The collection of games will keep everyone entertained. Most games were 2 quarters, some were 1 but they were ALL operational! We had fun playing, watching others play and just looking around. It's amazing how far they have progressed with arcade games!

This is a huge collection of arcade games from the late 1800's to the 1980's that are still operational. Change machines are available for the quarters you'll need- games average 1 or 2 quarters, with some requiring 3 or 4. All the machines operated well and some of the oldest ones were simple and funny to think of how amusing they must have been in their time period. There is also some very interesting amusement park history on the walls and this is a great place to escape the chilly bay air for a little while. We were surprised that they closed so early- 8:00- given the very busy wharf area where it is located.
