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

The Seattle Pinball Museum is absolutely one of the coolest places in the city! For the cost of your ticket, you can stay and play pinball for hours. Fun for all ages. Highly recommend!

Loved spending a few hours in the museum. Reading about each pinball machine and also being able to play them. Also has a 1980’s PacMan machine! Unlimited plays and serves beer! Would be the top place I would recommend for a visit.

We enjoyed our time at the Pinball Museum. We paid for admission and one drink for each of us and played for about two hours. Really enjoyed the PAC Man and other Atari type games

Nope just a bunch of stairs. The older machines are on the top floor.

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.
