Pacific Pinball Museum, The Smithsonian of Pinball

Pinball art is a melting pot of styles and subjects; graphic, sensational, and full of fantasy...  it's what draws you in to play the game!  Curated by d'Arci Bruno, Pinball Squared! challenged 20+ Bay Area artists to develop a backglass theme using their own style, subject, and medium.  This is a show you won't want to miss!

Pinball Squared!  runs from April 21st - July 31st.

Participating artists:

To entertain the masses during spring break, we are extending our hours all week!  From Tuesday, March 28th through Sunday, April 3rd, the Pacific Pinball Museum will be open from 11:00am to 10:00pm.  That's 3 additional morning hours PLUS an extra hour at night to keep the fun going!

Please note we will not be open until midnight on Friday and Saturday this week, so be sure to come early!

    A pilot class at the East Bay School for Boys has turned out to be a big success. It is a STEAM related class that uses the carrot of a pinball machine from the William White collection to garner interest in learning about how they work, the art and history of them, and the the physics and social courtesy involved in their play. The one hour classes introduced electricity, physics, art, culture, history, math, logic and more. Halfway through we assembled the pinball machine and then we started playing it at the last half hour of each class.

Get an extra day of pinball on President's Day!  The museum will be open on Monday, February 15th, from 11:00am to 5:00pm.

Got the Superbowl blues? Well trade in that $1500 ticket for a $15 ticket and play some pinball on the least crowded day of the year! While all the others are watching a game with no local heroes you can play it smart by avoiding all the mess and have the place to yourself! Come on down to the PPM and be a winner!

The exhibits are up and running in the new Science Room at the Pacific Pinball Museum. The Pin Chime, the Galton Pinball Machine, the Gottlieb Reset Video Kiosk and the original Visible Pinball Machine are combined with three other exhibits from the "Geometry on the Roll" series designed and built by Richard Falkard, former exhibit designer at the Exploratorium in San Francisco. 

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