This is less like a museum, and more like an amazing way to play pinball for several hours. It's $15 to get in, and every machine is free to play, save one or two of the very new ones. We spent four hours in there...More

Over fifty machines all on free play. The owners are great and friendly people. Some old machines back in early 1960 years. Some new machines. If you go to Seattle you got to go here. Cold beer and soda for sale.

This is a great place for the 40+ crowd although I think I would agree with other reviewers that young kids (8 under) might not see the beauty. We got there about 20 minutes after it opened on a weekday and the crowds were not...More

As a caveat, my family loves pinball. So this place rocked!!! For $15 a person, you could play all you wanted. They had pretty much all of the top ten machines, plus some new ones and a bunch of oldies. They had good policies allowing...More

The cool thing about this place is that all but 2 machines are set to free play. You pay one cover charge and you can play all day long. Unfortunately, the place is pretty small, so it can seem a little crowded. The machines are...More

The staff was helpful. The games are fun and it was worth the $17 per person to play unlimited games. My kids loved it and they are ten and thirteen. Who doesn’t want to play Ms. Pac-Man?!

A great selection of pinball machines from throughout the years. We were able to relive our childhoods and play some of our favorites. A little pricey but worth it if you are going to spend some time there playing all of the games. I know...More

This is a sad review to write, as the variety of pinball games and free play one-price admission is really nifty and pinball machines are (sadly) a dying breed. We had told our youngest he had to wait until the ripe old age of seven...More

Hi there, can't recall if they had an elevator or not. Try emailing the museum, they struck me as very helpful folks. As for any learning type exhibits, no it's just a ton of great old pinball machines

Parking downtown is a challenge. We took the light-rail from Tuckwilla Station which has free parking. The Chinatown station is 2 blocks from the Pinball Museum.
