Going to a museum is a wonderful way to learn how things were done in the past and to gain knowledge of how devices were constructed. Since it is not always possible (particularly at present) to visit museums in person having a museum that exists entirely online can be quite handy...
The Museum of Retro Technology is a work of almost encyclopaedic proportions that encompasses all that is strange, weird, bizarre, or just downright odd in the history of mechanical engineering.
Like all good museums it manages to educate and entertain in equal measure.

I have little enough time as it is.
I now have even less.
On the bright side I now know of the Shakespeare Mangle.

And I soooo want a Stirling Engine powered gramophone complete with enamelled megaphone.
And a steam powered bicycle. And a powered sack barrow.
We live in such an age of uniformity...
