  • What a credit to the owners!! Very well maintained pinballs from the 50’s to today. Met the guy who works full time to maintain them. He must be 1 in a billion. Great value. Free game play, cool local...  more »
  • The Seattle Pinball Museum is absolutely one of the coolest places in the city! For the cost of your ticket, you can stay and play pinball for hours. Fun for all ages. Highly recommend!  more »
  • Loved spending a few hours in the museum. Reading about each pinball machine and also being able to play them. Also has a 1980’s PacMan machine! Unlimited plays and serves beer! Would be the top place...  more »

  • What an incredible amount of fun can be had here. Once you pay to enter, you can play to your heart's content. The machines all have little cards with history about them making than when more fun to play. Although mostly pinball machine there are other cabinet games. Upstairs is a two player baseball game that takes a bit to get the hang of but once you do I believe is the highlight of the museum. All ages enjoy can themselves. Getting there at opening will also give you a much roomier and quiet experience.
  • What a perfect place to go for my sons 15th birthday! We had such a nice time. What fun to try all sorts of pinball machines from the 1960's to the current year! The unlimited play is a great idea. The owner gifted my son a real pinball (they are heavy!!) for his birthday. He loved it! I would highly recommend this place. I love the neighborhood too.
  • The first time I went to the pinball museum, the funds and details were handled for me; I was in a group. I had a lot of fun and enjoyed it very much. The second time, I went with my family. Or tried. The website said it closed at 6:00, we arrived at 4:45 and the staff rudely informed us it was closed. We tried again. My siblings, who are 12 and 9 arrived at 3:00 one saturday and the staff told them they could not play without an adult. My brother politely protested, and they rudely kicked him out. If you don't believe me, look at the 1 star reviews, and look at the owner's replies, shamelessly denying anything the reviews said. I would give it one star if I hadn't enjoyed it the first time.
  • Not like a museum that you may think about. A narrow building, with both walls lined with pinball machines. Pay $15 for a one-off entry (there are other rates available) and play unlimited pinball to your hearts content on a variety of machines. Small placards describe the table, and soft drinks/beer are available.
  • It is worth every penny of the $15 to go here. I got in at opening time at noon, and I stayed for 4 hours straight. It was like I was in some sort of weird time continuum or I didn't realize 4 hours had gone by, but I needed to get going I look down at my watch and I couldn't believe where the time has gone. I could have easily stayed for hours more. With over 50 machines running there was no shortage of fun to be had. Personally my favorite machine was White Water, but I must have played over 30 rounds of Whirlwind since I was trying to do my best to get on the leaderboard. By the way, I did not get on the leaderboard. They also have concessions there including alcoholic beverages. I enjoyed my stay there and I hope to be back again in the future.

Where to stay in Seattle

Famous for its architecture, Seattle's downtown area features a range of lodging options, including high-end hotels offering expensive rooms with views over Elliott Bay. Remember that despite their prices, many hotels in this waterfront district provide rather small rooms. If you need more space but don't want to break the bank, head out of downtown to some of the city's outlying neighborhoods. Seattle's diverse suburbs offer affordable bed and breakfasts, providing you with all the comforts of home and allowing you to see what local life is really like.
