How much: $12 per player. Ellen will need payment before the trip & will be collecting in the spring.  Please see the sign up sheet at the front desk.

What:  A short historical tour of the museum to see how pinball & gaming machines were made, the history of video gaming/pinball, the difference in gaming “back then” compared to today, and how they look on the inside. We will be divided into two groups for this part: preschool/elementary & middle/high school.
After the tour, all the machines (pinball & stand up video games) are set to free play! A limited amount of crates are available for smaller kids to tote around and stand on.

A SPECIAL NOTE: For MORE learning: Bring your smartphones/tablets.  You can scan a code on EVERY machine within the Hall of Fame and see the history and background of the games..

Here is a fascinating video about the innards of of pinball machine – it’s science!
