"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
