Owner description: The innovations of bowling unfold before your eyes through life-sized replicas, touch-screen kiosks, film montages and interactive games. See the custom bike built by the Tuetel Family and featured on Orange County Choppers program. Talk to a 1920's pinboy with an attitude. See how bowling balls & pins are made. Play on a fully functioning small-ball bowling lane. We set 'em up and you knock 'em down.

“Surprisingly Entertaining”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

My family and I are Six Flags season pass holders, so we drive by the Bowling Museum frequently. One day when we decided Six Flags was too busy to enter, we went to the Museum instead. The whole family really had a good time, even my 8 year old. Starting off with Egyptian mummies was a stroke of genius as my son's attention was instantly grabbed. So many of the displays were interactive that we never got bored, and the free bowling game at the end really made this an enjoyable visit. We only bowl a few times a year, but we would recommend this attraction to anyone.

“Bowling Museum is Excellent”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

The bowling museum is a first class operation and well worth going to see. Also the ITRC training center in conjunction with the museum is a first class venue.
