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. 

On May 13th, a brand new exhibition created in collaboration with the Pacific Pinball Museum opened at the Phaeno museum in Wolfsburg near Hannover in Germany.

Check out the Video of the Exhibit:

Entitled Ausgeflippt (Flipped-Out), the exhibition showcases the art and science of pinball using a combination of classic machines, huge artwork murals, and bespoke exhibits to demonstrate how pinball and science combine and complement each other.

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.
