First ever pinball museum recently opened in Roanoke, Virginia

The Roanoke Pinball Museum has over 40 different machines from the 1940s to present.

We have the opportunity to playfully educate and introduce a new generation to a game that has consistently reflected the sign of the times in American pop culture.

Center in the Square is excited to announce the addition of a brand new attraction to their facility - the Roanoke Pinball Museum.

Pinball players, young and old, will be introduced to the history of pinball, the science behind the game, and have an opportunity to appreciate the color, composition and overall design of the back glasses and playfields. SOL-compliant curriculum and educational resources will be available to students and teachers to reinforce their visit to the museum.

"We have the opportunity to playfully educate and introduce a new generation to a game that has consistently reflected the sign of the times in American pop culture while introducing a new attraction to Center in the Square and destination for the Roanoke Valley," said executive director Jim Sears.

The Roanoke Pinball Museum is an interactive museum where patrons can play any machine for one admission price. General admission for the summer is $10 for individuals 9+ and free for children 8 and younger (with accompanying adult 18+). Year-long memberships are available for individuals and families. Individual memberships are $75 and a household membership (2 adults and up to 4 children) is $125. Members receive year-long access to the museum, the ability to play in league competitions on Tuesday nights, invitations to special member events, and discounts on merchandise, concessions and museum rentals.
