Seattle Pinball Museum

Play vintage pinball machines in Seattle's China Town.

The Seattle Pinball Museum is located in Seattle's China Town, just south of downtown Seattle at 508 Maynard Ave S.

Have an awesome time drinking beer and playing both classic and modern pinball games.

Listen to all the noisy sound effects like clacks, dings and chimes as you score points. It's easy to spend 1 to 3 hours here, and the games are in great shape! The space is on the smaller side, but is spread over two floors.
