The Pacific Pinball Machine Museum just openned in Alameda, California. The museum is a non-profit organization that features 90 fully playable historic pinball machines, hosts the world's largest pinball gathering (the Pacific Pinball Expo), and creates travelling exhibits featuring the games and the science behind them.

The space has an awesome, classic Coney Island feel, and once you're in, you can play all day for free. "Our new front entrance at 1510 Webster Street, Alameda, CA is open 6 days a week with extended hours on weekends. We now offer 15 woodrails and 20 wedgeheads from Larry Zartarian’s collection and additional games representing early pinballs from the Mr and Mrs. Gordon Hasse, Dan Miller, and Michael Schiess Collections. The beautiful wall murals are by Dan Fontes assisted by Ed Cassel and many volunteers....Come down and be blown away by the best place to experience pinball in the world! All machines are on freeplay and once admission is paid, you can come and go all day."
