Musee Mecanique & The Tombstones at Aquatic Park
Saturday, March 20, 2010 from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
UPDATE: We've opened this event up to more people - please join us!
Join Atlas Obscura editors for an afternoon excursion to the amazing Musee Mecanique for an afternoon of creepy wind-up fortune tellers, prisoner-made toothpick automata, and naughty peep shows of yesteryear. Proprietor Dan Zelinsky will be on hand to tell stories and answer questions about the contraptions. When all the quarters run out, we'll head down to Aquatic Park for afternoon snacks on the terraces made of discarded Gold Rush era tombstones.
