  • We were so surprised and pleased to find this fantastic pinball museum in downtown Alameda! With over 100 pinball machines dating back to the 1940s and earlier, we were able to easily blow a couple of...  read more »
  • The Pacific Pinball Museum is a well kept secret in the Bay Area. Not only can you be educated about the history of pinball and it's evolution to the amazing games we have today but you can also play ...  read more »
  • Everyone is bound to find the pinball game they have been looking for! So many genres and themes to check out, I always have fun here! 
  • Bit pricey, but if you're into pinball, look no further. 90 machines, 5 rooms, oldest in the front room, newer ones in the back. And the ultra modern pay-per Ame are at the door. Nothing like your favorite pinball machine set to free play. Don't be a flipper chimp!
  • I had a great time here and this is coming from a chick who's only played pinball on good ol' Windows XP. Whether you love pinball machines or have never played before, you'll have fun without having to pay for each play! [+] got a Groupon deal for $7 entry (normally $15) [+] unlimited play on pinball machines from the 1950s to 1990s [+] cool display of antique machines (before the creation of pinball) [+] each room has machines and a jukebox dedicated to each decade -- absolutely LOVE! especially the 80s jukebox, which is free to play too [+] the "fireball" was my fave from the 70s; it had some trippy spinning wheel in the playfield [+] the 80s had some pretty cool machines: "pin-bot", Phantom of the Opera, this one w/ a freaky talking doll head... [+] 90s room felt like memory lane w/ machines themed after Addams Family, Doctor Who, Indiana Jones [+] there are soooo many machines that you don't have to worry about waiting for a machine to free up [+] some rare ones too, like the see-through pinball machine [+] and there's this room w/ some random old arcade games I spent a lotttt more time here than I expected to. Who knew playing pinball for several hours could tire you out so much! Cool hangout spot; good for families, friends, and date nights.
  • A refuge from XXI century life. Relaxed, friendly service, energetic atmosphere with people of all ages having a great time together.
  • Great place to spend some time playing a lot of pinball. No wait to play the older games, which they have a lot of. The newer game room were more crowded and if you want to play the newest games, bring more money, they aren't included in admission.
  • If you like pinball this is fantastic. The machines are grouped together by decade and it's really cool to see them change over the years. However, unless you really like pinball, you might get bored (I really enjoyed it but 1 of my 3 guests were expecting more museum vs arcade).
