Steve Zahler, founder and museum curator explains, "We're on a mission to bring back this beloved and historic entertainment art form. For a true comeback, pinball must be accessible to everyone and not just found in places where kids can't go. Here, families enjoy quality time together, teachers bring their students and campers for STEM and science field trips, and fun parties are celebrated." For those who want to dig deeper, the Interactive Pinball Exhibit lets visitors see inside a real pinball machine, and historical and technological details are provided on-screen and via placards throughout the museum.


All ages are invited to learn about and experience the wonderful attractions that have captivated kids and adults for decades. Conveniently located in beautiful Kips Bay Manhattan, this social, safe and family-friendly destination focuses on fun and learning. In the words of the founders, "We’re so excited to bring our passion for pinball to New York City. It is our mission to bring back pinball in a big way and hope to see it re-emerge throughout the country and beyond. Hope to see you soon!"
