Visited Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum, which has been in the same locale for at least twenty five years. I first visited it when it was part of Tally Hall, a shopping area designed after Boston's Faneuill Hall. Tally Hall is entirely gone, the buildings are not standard strip malls, but Marvin's still lives on.
