"You'll find Pacific Pinball Museum in a busy, yet comfortable neighborhood on Alameda Island. If you love pinball, you have got to check this place out! PPM is clean, well maintained, affordably priced and lots and LOTS of fun! Expect to find nearly 100 games, both new and vintage, set up for free play (all day) with admission. You will also get the chance to see first had how the game has progressed through time. Worth mentioning is the well stocked gift shop up front, and a reasonably priced vending area for snacking in the rear. Also found the staff to be knowledgeable and helpfull as well". - Dan 2/19

"A really interactive, fun museum of pinball machines. You can play as many as you like in the included price, and you can EASILY spend multiple hours here. Playable machines all the way from the 50s to current day. There are probably about 70 machines total! Each machine also has a sign explaining it's history and special features. A party room is also out the back. Very clean and staff friendly and passionate about their job. Hours are great too - some nights they're open to 9pm. Very affordable - support this non-profit!!" -Alison 3/19

"I would say this place is awesome, but that doesn't even come close. Friendly staff, and a huge variety of pinball tables from the '40s on up. My 14 and 12 year old girls had a blast. Will definitely visit again soon." - Scott 1/18

"Pacific Pinball Museum is a true gem. Arranged across a couple of storefronts and by era, you'll find everything from early American machines that have the charm of hobby projects, to big budget, multi-ball dynamo machines referencing the cinematic legacies of Iron Man and Transformers. Step stools are provided to help introduce the youngest generation to this classic game genre, and it is normal to see all ages playing side-by-side. Chairs are provided for attending parents to sit and chat over the staccato din of the machines. Pay once at entry and play all you want is the rule here, so plan ahead and stay for hours." - Wesley 10/18

"I had a lot of fun! I've always had a passing interest in pinball machines and this visit ended up being pretty entertaining. The history is interesting to see unfold, and it's cool to be able to play with the machines from different eras. If you feel any satisfaction in playing with clicky mechanical things then this definitely a place to go to town. Fun with friends and family.​" - Abhra 12/18

"This place is what is missing across communities! A safe and fun place to play games - especially the kind that bring back fond memories of yesteryear and allow for shared memories. Games are in great working order, the place overall is very clean and tidy,

and the price is unbeatable! I will be back, but with more friends!" - Rachel 12/18
