There are numerous museums across the country that hold interesting things worth your time, but there are a couple that stand out. Take Asheville Pinball Museum, for example. This is a one-of-a-kind museum where you can buy, sell, learn and play.
At Asheville Pinball Museum, you’ll see over thirty pinball machines that date back to 1966 and go all the way up to 2014. Some of the pinball games that you can play are Asteroids, Centipede, Ms. Pac-Man, and Pac-Man. (You can expect to find different pinball machines for sale.) There’s even a bar that features hard cider, beer, water and soda.
This establishment began when T.C. Di Bella decided to search for old pinball machines in warehouses and old barns across the country. It’s a really great place to play pinball and to see a variety of different historic pinball machines. It brings you back to your childhood!
Young and old can have a wonderful time here. It is open Mondays from 1:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 2:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., Saturday from noon to 9:00 p.m., and Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Admission is just $15.00 for adults. Children ten years of age and under get an admission fee of just $12.00. Once you pay the admission, you can play as much as you want. (To experience this attraction up close, sometimes there might be a short waiting time.)
During weekends, there tends to be more people than on the weekdays. Therefore, if you like to avoid big crowds, opt to go during the weekdays.
For those individuals who are in wheelchairs, the Asheville Pinball Museum is accessible, as it’s easy to get around, but it’s important to note that at the moment, there aren’t any special amenities being provided for the handicapped at this attraction.
If you’re interested in seeing a preview of the Pinball Museum, the Places to Go team did film a bit of it for their Season 1 episode. You can watch that here (hint: the museum footage starts at 3:53) :
