Pacific Pinball Museum, The Smithsonian of Pinball

Celebrate Vintage Pinball Style at the Pacific Pinball Museum! Play, shop, laugh, and dance at this special all day event.

Ticket includes all day access to the Pacific Pinball Museum where 100 pinball games are on free play. No quarters needed!

A vintage fashion sale takes place 1pm - 5pm coinciding with the Museum's current Pinball Style exhibit. See pinball fashions come to life! Clothing and accessories ranging from the 1930s to the 90s will be for sale, from the personal collections of 4 stylish women, including 2 Etsy sellers.

Pinball Style is an exhibition with commentary on pinball art from the 1940’s through the 2000’s.  Melissa Harmon’s work explores dramatic and historical context with a touch of Fashion Police humor. See how pinball reflects the tastes of the day with beautiful, sometimes risque' backglass and playfield art designed to extract loose change from young men's trousers.

City Council Approves Exclusive Negotiation Agreement

The Pacific Pinball Museum (PPM) now has an agreement with the City of Alameda to restore the vacant Carnegie Library as their new home and has presented the city with our $750K deposit to work towards an ENA. This magnificent 1902 building has sat vacant since 1998 and needs an incredible amount of work to be ready for the public again. This location will more than triple the museum's display capacity, but the museum desperately needs your help now to raise the funds needed to move and restore the building. The facility will also provide space for community events, classrooms, exhibits and many other expansions to PPM’s already exciting programs. Your donations go directly toward reopening this building to the public!

In this class, a group of girls designed and built pingames on metal grids using quilting pins and marbles.

99% Invisible came to the PPM and also talked to Roger Sharpe.

David Volansky, a native of San Francisco, was elected to the board by a unanimous vote on August 10th, 2014. David brings his systems analysis expertise to the museum from a career in IT.  While he won’t rest until every last pinball machine is in perfect working order, he will take out some time to work as a board member on the larger goals of the museum.
