San Francisco Airport

Two exhibitions at SFO that may be of interest to magicians:

In Terminal 3 until June, 2017: "Games of Chance - Gambling Devices of the Mechanical Age"

In Terminal 2 until May, 2017: "The Mysterious Talking Board - Ouija and Beyond"

I only had enough time to look at the one armed bandits while en route from Sydney to Boston. Fascinating exhibits, well presented.

Those displays look fascinating. Unfortunately both of them are "post-security" which means you'll have to have a plane ticket to see them. Two plane tickets actually since they are in different terminals :(

No, just one ticket. You can transfer between terminals once you're in one.

The Ouija exhibit is fantastic. So many boards, and the text/history portions are interesting. Definitely worth perusing if you're able.
