Alert ******* The Pinball Museum has a new address. They are now, since April 15, 2021, located on Las Vegas Blvd., near the airport. The address is:
4925 Las Vegas Blvd South, Las Vegas NV 89119.

The Pinball Hall of Fame Museum is a great place to get out of the blistering heat of Las Vegas and have a great time. There are rows and rows of vintage and not-so-vintage pinball games to play. Most all were working and we had a wonderful time. I'm 69 and I found many games that I played as a kid. And found some much newer games too. Most are 25 cents with a few requiring more of an investment, but those were mainly games of the last 30 or so years. My brother's grandkids (8-12) had never played pinball before and this place made them stop using their phones. It was clean and very well maintained. There were several volunteers to help you if needed. A great family outing!

This place warms my heart and speaks directly to my inner child. In a city where everything feels outrageously overpriced this hidden gem is a true delight. My husband and I have been traveling to Vegas for years and he enthusiastically proclaims this as “the best place in town”. The warehouse has free parking and no admission fee- all you pay for are the machines. There are games for everyone in the family from any generation including classic pinball (“Creature from the Black Lagoon”, “Terminator”, “Indiana Jones” etc.), Guitar Hero, Dance,Dance Revolution, Ms. PacMan, Donkey Kong, Tron, Joust, Table Hockey and more. My teenage sons, myself and my husband were entertained for hours on just $40. Do NOT miss this amazing place. It is well worth a trip off the now-overly-commercialized and pricey strip.

The Pinball Hall of Fame has moved to the Las Vegas Strip! It reopened in a larger building near the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign and next to the Harley Davidson Store in July 2021. A new two sided neon sign was being installed during the day of our visit so it will be easier to find. It has a decent size parking lot and you will find plenty of pinball games to play that are from various decades, play Guitar Hero, have a Dance Off, take photos in a photo booth, and lots of other options. They have new bathrooms,candy machines and a ceiling fan that keeps things cool. We miss the popcorn machine but we hope they will bring it back! Different machines require different amounts of quarters and you can get change there. I enjoy playing the older games because I am bad at pinball and I get 5 balls while in newer games you pay more and only get 3. My sisters are the high scorers and they were very competitive that day!

My family and I attempted to visit on June 2, 2021. My younger sister and I walked in before the rest of our family, me wearing my mask and her wearing her face shield. Before we could begin looking around at the games, a female employee approached me. This employee pointed at my sister and said that a mask needed to be worn as well because a face shield was not enough protection. She stated I should’ve seen the sign on the door before I walked in; I did not. I began to explain that my sisters both have special needs/disabilities that make them exempt from face mask use but they are able to wear face shields. I was asked to provide proof of this, which was not present because the situation has never came about for it to be needed. As I was explaining this, the rest of my family entered and walked over to me and my sister. This female employee had the nerve to look my sisters up and down and say, “They don’t look like they have disabilities.” I immediately told her that the comment was uncalled for and she had no place to judge that herself. She then tried to apologize by saying it was a “compliment” and her face was “turning red because she was so embarrassed”. No, it is not a “compliment”. This woman was trying to cover-up for her unnecessary and judgmental words. I could not say anything more to her. At that point I turned around and exited the building, the rest of my family following behind me while the employee said, “Well, I guess you’re leaving now.”
What she said and how she handled herself was unprofessional. Disabilities and special needs come in many forms; not all are visible. This comment was incredibly hurtful along with her way of trying to cover it up. My siblings are 8 and 10. They don’t need to see this kind of judgment and to be told that they don’t look like they have special needs.
If that comment had not been made, I believe my siblings would’ve sucked it up for half an hour to wear a mask UNDER their shields. Instead, a family of five walked out and didn’t look back. A family who was excited to play some games and have some fun.

NOTE: I did look at the website before visiting. It does not mention anything about having to wear a mask if a face shield is being worn. The face shield sign AT THE LOCATION was not noticed when walking in because we had already received the face covering warning from the website.
Although that information would be nice online, that’s not the problem. The problem that caused all this was the comment made by the female employee.

Don’t waste your time/money here! Search the reviews of this place for the word “rude” and you’ll get the point. As many mention, the elderly man running the place is extremely rude. He talks to customers like they are an inconvenience. He also demands a library-like environment in an arcade?? He should be happy that anyone actually comes to this place as it’s a $20 round trip Uber ride from the Vegas strip.

Hall of Fame? More like the Hall of Broken Games. The place is dark and dirty, but that’s how the old arcades were back in the day so I’m ok with that part. They have a few newer pinball machines in decent condition but many of the games are either in poor playing condition or completely broken machines that are turned off.

Totally not worth the $20 round trip plus the cost of playing the beat down games. I’m sure this place get tourists (it’s Vegas) but I doubt they get a lot of repeat business. I would never return.

We have a few arcade games at home so when I saw this museum where you could actually play on the games, it was definitely a place to go. They have change machines and you just walk around and find a game you want to play. A few games took our quarters and it was hard to find someone who worked there. The building was new so bathrooms were nice and clean and they had a drink vending machine. Signs on some machines made it helpful for using them. Depending on how much you wanted to spend, you could play all day. Most machines I saw were 50 cents per play. If you played well and got bonuses, you got maybe 3-5 balls per play. There were a few digital arcade driving games too. We really liked it and would go back!

Totally met expectations. Classic pinball hall vibe mixed with a feeling of museum due to the span of years of games you can view or play. Fun tactile way to kill a couple hours (if you like non-digital skill games). Easily accessible by car/Uber from the strip. Went once on a weekday and once on a weekend. Weekday we saw only couple other people so we could choose whatever we wanted. Weekend was a little more crowded but not overcrowded and did not wreck the experience. Couple of games ate quarters quickly in true old fashioned pinball style, but we also found free plays on a couple machines, so it all evened out. The 50 cent games are the value. Older 25 cent machines are more difficult, slower flipper reaction, more wide open table to lose the ball straight down the shoot. Newer machines tend to have more ramps and lights, but also cost more to play. Still really cheap compared to gambling, but to extend your time without re-opening your wallet, stick more to the 50 and 75 cent machines. Most of the patrons appeared to be from a pinball generation, including us. Not sure the younger generation would “get it”, but it doesn’t hurt to try to expose them to the unique experience of pinball.

A true throwback to my childhood in the 80's when pinball machines and old video games like Mario Brothers, Crazy Climber, Joust, Space Ace and Dragon's Lair compliment what seems to be well over 100 pinball machines (also seen in old arcades) that go from the 1940's to early 2000's. Most games are $.25, some are $.50, which is a drop of a drop in the bucket considering you are in Las Vegas. This is a non-profit, so there is much more than just revisiting your youth, you are also supporting a non-profit. No admission charge and they moved to a 'new' location on the strip really close to the Las Vegas sign coming onto the LV Strip.

Great for a rainy day or to get out of the heat. You could spend 2+ hours there and still spend less than $10 for the afternoon/evening

I have been to the Pinball Hall of Fame many times over the years that I have lived in Las Vegas. Each and every time I go has been a wonderful experience for me. I grew up with Pinball (I am 63 years old now) and the thrill of playing the game has never left me. I just lost my job of 9 years due to Covid-19, and have been down in the dumps lately, so I am going there today to try and cheer myself up a bit.

Yes the place is a bit old and dirty, but that is the way it was when I was a kid as well. True Pinball aficionados will hunt down machines anywhere they can find them, and most places one would visit were old and dirty as well back then. The 'Old School' nature of the place just helps one to relive the experiences of their youth. Look past the dinginess, and emerse yourself in the wonder of the place.

I understand the owners are building a new place across from Mandalay Bay. I wish them all the best and hope it turns out to be a wonderful getaway for children of all ages, myself included.

If you go there, please keep your children in check. Many of these machines are fragile, as well as a lot of the patrons. Kids running around having fun is great. Kids running around, unsupervised, beating up the machines, and ruining the fun for others is not. Please come to experience and preserve the place, not destroy it.

Thank you Pinball Hall of Fame. You are truly the best in your league. You are the Best of Las Vegas. I, for one, truly appreciate that you are there to enjoy.

So this museum really intrigued me as I had visited similar places in Poland and Seattle. However at this Pinball Museum you pay by the game versus paying a set entrance fee. The place is a tad on the dark and dingy side and some of the games are $1 a game while others just 25 cents. I had fun playing a few of the games and just looking at the others. You can easily send a long time here if you want to.
