Pacific Pinball Museum, The Smithsonian of Pinball

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.

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.
