Visitors to the Pacific Pinball Museum in Alameda can expect all-you-can-play pinball for a flat fee. On a school break with school-aged kids? Buy admission to this retro amusement hall for a couple of hours of pinball entertainment. It's open Tuesday through Sunday.
A toddler playroom now makes the Pacific Pinball Museum an even better outing for mixed-age families.
A visit to Alameda's Pacific Pinball Museum is as much fun for parents as for kids. The layout of the museum/arcade goes from most vintage to most modern in a horseshoe path. My children, above, are playing the super duper old school games.
Don't miss the toddler room in the back. When you pay to play pinball with — or without — older kids, there is a play room with art supplies, legos, puzzles, trains, books, instruments and Lincoln logs. Little kids get to party in this fun space for free.
