The PPM was recently able to meet with City Manager John Russo and Nannete Mocanu to present bank statements showing our deposits totalling $750K for the Carnegie Improvement fund. This is the first step in securing an agreement for the reuse of the building into the new home for the PPM. Our next milestone will be securing the City Council's affirmation of the lease agreement we develop. We are scheduled to meet with the council in mid-September. The capital campaign will begin in full on their approval.
$15 for adults
$7.50 for kids under 16

PPM needs to raise $750,000 in three months!
The Pacific Pinball Museum (PPM) is excited to announce it has signed a Letter of Intent with the City of Alameda to restore the vacant Carnegie Library as their new home. 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!

The 111-year-old Carnegie Library in Alameda is eerily silent these days, even for a place that was built with quiet study in mind.
This is a video telling the story of the Pacific Pinball Museum.
The board of the Pacific Pinball Museum has decided to hold off producing any further Expositions as the main focus is on securing a new, permanent location for the museum collection.
Please do not call the museum with questions about the Pacific Pinball Exposition, we are working as hard as we can to further the mission of preserving pinball art, science and history for future generations.
