Sure there'd be a marble museum, but not on every street corner, and anyone could walk in for free even if they didn't have any marbles because someone at the door with a great big smile would pass them out by the handful so you could play a game, but of course, there'd be no Keepsies or Elephant Stomps because it is a museum, after all, so there'd have to be a few rules.
