  Antique Juke Box
by mcpangie

Since it only cost a quarter, it isn't a bad "tourist trap". It's just one of those things that seems kind of touristy. This piano is at the Mark Twain Bookstore.

The signs says, "Grandpa played ME while guzzling his brew; This box was the forerunner of the 'JUKE BOX'".

Unique Suggestions: It actually doesn't sound all that bad, but the songs were as out of date as the piano... meaning whatever played I'd never heard before.

Fun Alternatives: The only alternatives that cost a quarter in Nevada are nickle machines at the casino across the street from the bookstore...

It only costs a quarter, got to do some tourist stuff while you're visiting Virginia City, that might as well be one of them!
