Our Mission Statement: " To teach science, art and history through pinball, and to preserve and promote this important part of American culture. "
The Pacific Pinball Museum (PPM) is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and preservation of one of America's great pastimes. We do this by operating the Pacific Pinball Museum offering a selection of 90 playable pinball machines representing the evolution of flipper pinball. On display are early machines from the '30s and '40s representing the birth of pinball in America. In the front are the latest pinball machines from Stern. Rotating exhibits highlight pinball art and artists. The museum displays 10 huge pinball backglass murals by Bay Area Artists. In order to display more machines, the museum rotates games borrowing from their collection of over 400 working games. We teach classes and make exhibits and exhibitions using pinball to educate about history, science and art. We use pinball to get familes and friends to socialize with each other in a fun, colorful, educational environment.
