The Pinball Hall of Fame is old school gaming at its best. Revisit a time before Xbox, Wii and PlayStation became a staple in most teenager's homes. With over 200 games and pinball machines dating back from the 1950’s through to 1990’s, this museum will undoubtedly bring back old memories to anyone over the age 30. Unlike most museums, you can touch and even play with the collection. That’s right, just slip a quarter (or two) into the slot and you can start knocking about that silver ball with the left & right flippers. Good times.

Unlike most arcades and museums, this is a non-profit establishment. After the monthly expenses of bills, up-keep and rent are paid, ALL of the remaining profits from the machines go directly to charity. For many years the charity of choice has been and currently is The Salvation Army. Tim Arnold is the creator, owner and operator of The Pinball Hall of Fame. Mr. Arnold has had a lifetime love affair with pinball machines and found great success with the arcade business in the 70’s and 80’s. Today, he operates the pinball hall every day (even holidays) and sends a check every month to charity.

There is no entrance fee or admission charges, however, you may want to bring some of small bills or quarters so you can partake in all the pinball action. Since it is a non-profit organization, don’t expect a lot of bells and whistles (except from the machines). It is a bare-bones place with the focus strictly on the machines. Located 2.4 miles from the east end of the Strip, car/taxi is the best way to get there. The stand alone building has street-front parking. The outside of the building is simple, so be careful not to miss it.

Take a break from the flashy casinos and mind-numbing slot machines for some good old-fashion fun. The kids will love it. The adults will probably love it even more.
