Highlights of the Pinball Hall of Fame

The nostalgic childhood memory of running to the arcade with a pocket full of quarters comes to life at the Pinball Hall of Fame. Not only can you meander through row after row of some of the most popular pinball machines ever made, but many of the machines are still playable to let you relive that bumping and banging thrill.

The machines are kept in pristine condition, which adds to the overall atmosphere of care and enjoyment of one of America’s favourite pastimes. The privately-run museum is a nonprofit that supports the Salvation Army.

Good to know when visiting the Pinball Hall Of Fame

Almost all of the pinball machines on display are fully operational, and visitors are encouraged to play. You can bring your own quarters or use the change machine on the premises. The games typically range from $0.25-$0.50. The gift shop has a number of books, magazines, and DVDs dedicated to the love of pinball and machine repair.

The Pinball Hall of Fame is easy to get to, as it is a few blocks from the Las Vegas Strip down Tropicana Avenue, just past the airport and the University. Street parking is available, and ride-sharing or public transport can get you here as well.
