They have two kinds of admission - you can visit once or pay a little more to revisit at your leisure all day. At first I thought that the price was quite a bit for such a small place, but I was really wrong. Admission...More

Visiting from Ireland we discovered this place on Atlasobscura. Cindy and her husband were so lovely. We had a couple of craft beers playing the pinball machines but pakman was particularly a favourite spent literally an hour on it! Highly recommend a visit

For $15 you get to play for as long as you want. I could have stayed forever. Lots of variety in the games available. Fun to see the progression of pinball from 1960-today.

I brought my son and a few of his middle-school friends here for his birthday. I had as much fun (if not more!) than they did. For one entrance fee, you get unlimited play on all machines except two (Wizard of Oz and Harry Potter)....More

We came here with 2 teens and spent about 2 hours playing pinball! We arrived around 1pm and there were around 12-15 people in the museum so it wasn't as noisy. By the time we left, there were about 25-30 people playing and the place...More

Many of the machines were down, a few had small things wrong. A couple of them were pay for play. The customer service was crap, the guy behind the till was rude. Overall it's worth the visit, but I'd rather go to Shorty's!

Luckily we went with a "Stay + Play" guest pass which gave us 50% admission, so this was well worth the money. The admission price lets you play as long as you like as all the games are on Free Play mode. Many favorites in...More

A local told i that we should go. $15 dollars entrance gets you access to play more than 40 vintage Pinball machines as much as your heart desires. Great for adults, replaying past memories and children alike.

Perfect way to spend a fun, nostalgic afternoon in Seattle. With dozens of pinball machines (and a few video games) from the 1930's to now, there is always a game available to test your silver ball skills! Owner/operators are super to talk with and very...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.
