    I just found out The founder died this year. Marvin Jay Yagoda, a pharmacist by trade who was best known for creating Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum in Farmington Hills, Michigan died. He was 78. I had the pleasure of meeting him at his museum. He greeted me as if I was an old friend. And though I only met him once I feel like I lost a friend. Parts of the website are now broken links. I called the phone number am pleased to report his son is carrying on. He was a true pioneer in this hobby. Pinball is only a small part of the museum, but everyone should put this on their bucket list.
