Our big goal in 2018 is find and acquire a permanent warehouse space to house our ever growing collection, create classroom areas for STEAM programs, and open our doors for more Expos and Special Events.

 

In 2018, The Pacific Pinball Museum will continue to aspire for excellence in our work and to achieve our goal of acquiring a permanent space where we host public events and expand our educational programming. Our mission, as always, is to show and share our expanding collection of these amazing machines for people of all ages to experience and enjoy.

 

Thank you once again for the generosity and support that you give to our unique museum…we do it for YOU!
