Experience the art, history, and science of pinball as an American interactive pastime, Oct. 24-Nov. 16, at the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum located at 3015 Greenwood Road in Shreveport. The Friends of the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum and a group of Texas-based pinball collectors have joined forces to curate “Pinball – An American Game Experience,” a special exhibition presented in conjunction with the State Fair of Louisiana that will feature pinball machines from the 1930s to the 1990s, memorabilia, and interactive displays that illustrate the mechanics behind pinball.
Museum Director Wayne Waddell is excited about hosting this special, interactive exhibit.
“It’s a fun, hands-on exhibit that will attract visitors of all ages and expand the museum’s reach to new audiences during the State Fair of Louisiana and beyond,” said Waddell.
Hours for the exhibition are 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday-Friday, and 12-6 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. Admission to this exhibit is free.
Jayson Woods, a Dallas-based pinball collector who is part of the group of collectors pulling together the exhibition, said he and his friends enjoy their machines and like to share them with others.
“The games are meant to be played,” said Woods.
Free parking for the exhibition is available at the museum and in the museum’s parking lot across the street. (Please note that these lots are for museum parking only and will close daily when the museum closes.)
