R.I.P. Marvin

Marvin Yagoda, founder of Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum, has passed away.

For those who have never been, Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum is a hidden gem of the Detroit area. It is hidden behind a strip mall and overflowing with cool stuff. There are the standard video games, classic and current, but there’s so much more:

One of my favorite displays is P.T. Barnum’s Cardiff Giant – a fake of a fake.

I hope that Marvin’s legacy lives on. Once my kids are a little older this place is high on my list for family outings.
