Just because it’s a rainy day, doesn’t mean there’s nothing left to do in Myrtle Beach! Bring your game indoors at the Myrtle Beach Pinball Museum, where you don’t have to go far to travel back in time. The museum is located at 607 27th Ave. North in Myrtle Beach.
The collection of more than 25 pinball machines from the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s is ranked as South Carolina’s largest, and after one visit to the Myrtle Beach Pinball Museum, you’ll discover it’s so much more. Now open to the public, the unique attraction originally began privately with a group of folks who bonded with their love of vintage pinball machines. One owner, Jerry, started it all by buying a pinball machine for his real estate office. One became two, which triggered three … and, three years later, the rest is history!
Today, the mission of the Myrtle Beach Pinball Museum is to share this American pop culture art form across generations to not only look and admire, but to actually play on all of the working machines! “We want to inspire, preserve and promote this national treasure of pure American engineering,” say the owners. The Myrtle Beach Pinball Museum operates on an all-volunteer staff.
The entire family will have a blast to the past during this nostalgic playdate. Teach the kids some good, old-fashioned fun beyond video games!
