Owner description: The Pacific Pinball Museum is a 501 c 3 non profit dedicated to teaching science,art and history through pinball and to display and preserve this great American treasure. It is also a hands on interactive experience of fun! Over 85 games to play from the earliest pinball machines to the latest. One admission lets you play all day to your hearts content, without fumbling for quarters. It is family friendly and educational with shows on the art of pinball, exhibits on pinball science and our permanent historical display of pinball evolution. People from the world over have given us rave reviews and love our unique presentation of this classic game. Our large format murals of hand painted backglass art are admired and coveted by artists and pinheads alike and the chance to play a completely transparent pinball machine is icing on the cake.

“He needed more time....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2012

Actually, only my son, 40, went in. He and his wife were flying back to San Diego, and we just had a little time for him to check this place out. The owner gave him a quick tour and he LOVED IT. We listened to all the positives he experienced on the ride to the airport. Highly recommended for pinball aficionados and children.

“An afternoon delight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

When you first peer inside it seems there are not as many pinball games as advertised.However there wer additional rooms with more pinball games than one could play in a day.They were in excellent condition and schooling my teenage son was quite fun.Great enjoyment at areasonable price!
