Pinball Museum: Game Over

Pinball Museum: Game Over

The National Pinball Museum is closing. The NPM is located in Washington’s Georgetown Park mall, and the new landlord has hit the flipper, bouncing the museum out. The institution had only been open for five months.

Is nothing sacred? The Pinball Museum is more than a repository of amusement industry technology. It is a tribute to billions of wasted hours of 20th century American youth.

The museum is planning to relocate, but you can still enjoy our nation’s precious electro-mechanical heritage through July 4th at Georgetown Park, Wisconsin Avenue and M Streets NW ( 3rd floor). There are 200 pinball machines, historical displays, classroom space, tournaments, a gift shop, and a restoration lab.
