The area
Address
Neighborhood: Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.

This place is open 13 hours a day, so turn up early, pay your entrance fee, then pop back as many times as you want throughout the day (wristbands available for re-entry)..
The place seems quite new and there is plenty of space. Lots of classic pinball machines - I'm sure most of your favourites are here.
There's a bar on the 1st floor and drinks holders/tables are placed between the pinball machines, so you can sip and flip to your hearts content. Atmosphere good, staff friendly - get yourself down there and enjoy!!

Loved this place! Such a great idea to have a game museum where you can actually play the games! It's €10 and you can come and go as you please during the day. They have air-con and a bar so it's a good place to escape the heat. Wish we could have stayed for longer!

Vintage, inspired, thrilling. Excellent .the lokation is very convenient.Meters away from most important archeological sights of athens.for a small fee you can come and go having fun all day long. But beware the pinball machines are adorable you may need a second round.As for me born in 1973 .... i had a flash back of my teenage years. I strongly recommend not to lose it.

Disappointed because I walked 30 minutes in the hot sun, and I am a big pinball fan. Found the place completely closed with no explanation. Covid? It looked as if it had been closed for a long time. And there is no information on the internet. Sketchy.

We spent an entire afternoon (to avoid the rain) here so the entry fee was good value. Most of the machines were working and I think we collectively played over 80 pinball machines! From the 1960s to present day. Friendly staff and a something really unusual. Worth a visit!

Great fun if you like pinball - good for adults and kids and great value. Get a cold beer and a snack in an air-con pinball arcade with a huge range of great machines and just play...it is very close to a number of historic sites in the area of the Parthenon...a slice of genuine Americana with nice selection of American rock music as you play... myself and my 2 buddies loved it and so will you...

We enjoyed a rainy day in Athens at the pinball museum. As this was not our first pinball museum we have something to compare with and although there were really a lot of machines we missed some pinball machines that were more recent.
Amongst the mostly old machines which were also great we found some newer ones that were really entertaining and made the experience more fun for us. Also a pity: even though some machines were under restauration, we found some that were amongst the working/not under restauration that had some flippers not entirely working or other things broken which was a pity.

All in all a day well spent in an old school environment which we loved! The staff were very friendly as well.
Our favorites: Star wars, Family guy, Doctor who and the adams family

Didn’t really know what to expect from
a pinball museum, but wasn’t disappointed. Over 100 different pinball machines to play as often as you like, friendly and informative staff on hand to help, nice bar area upstairs. Great way to spend an afternoon in Athens.

What a fun surprise! There are dozens of pinball machines from all different eras (from late 70s to mid-to-late 90s) and with the reasonable fee, all are free to play. All the flashing lights, thunks, and "Just Say No" messages that you could ever hope for. For me, it was a nice change of pace from rushing about the city looking at ancient history - come experience recent history instead.
