I went with a couple of friends and we enjoyed the old games. Pinball games are great. The old video arcade games also a plus. I don’t see kids having that much fun here. I saw them bouncing from one game to the other not...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

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.

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.
