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.

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!
