Long before video games found their way into the home, arcades across America were filled with the lights and sounds of mechanical pinball machines and the young people who were enamored by them. These machines are now finding their way back into the spotlight in barcades, private collections, and professional pinball tournaments.
Pinball doesn’t need to be SAVED – it needs to be SAVORED!
An 18 Acre Pinball Campus
Located a little over an hour from Los Angeles and Orange County and 20 minutes from Palm Springs, California, the Museum of Pinball is a non-profit organization with a campus that includes…
- 18 acres just a few miles from the Morongo Casino & Resort and Cabazon Outlets with thousands of visitors and tourists flooding the area each day.
- 40,000 square feet designated for the first phase of the Museum of Pinball and another 87,000 square feet we’ve already leased to a local business (which we hope to expand to in the future with more pinball and arcade games).
- Over 1,100 pinball machines and arcade games (both vintage and modern).
- 5 acres of mature trees where we plan to develop a retro trailer hotel with 20 refurbished, vintage recreational vehicles – each decorated uniquely. (This is part of the 2nd phase of our plan.)
Why a Museum of Pinball?
- Pinball is experiencing a massive comeback.
- We want young people to experience the excitement of an electronic game that doesn’t just appear on a screen.
- We want people who grew up playing pinball to rediscover their passion for the game…or what we like to call a “sport.”
- We want to help bring competitive pinball tournaments into the spotlight.
- We want to preserve the amazing history of the game.
- Ultimately, we just want more people to fall in love with pinball.
The Museum of Pinball is a non-profit organization recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)3, tax-exempt, charitable organization.
