If you haven’t had the chance to check out the relocated National Pinball Museum — and we haven’t — this slideshow on the Huffington Post gives great glimpse into the Inner Harbor attraction.
Here’s what the HuffPo has to say:
The one-of-a-kind museum is a perfect fit for Baltimore, which already boasts quirky attractions like the American Visionary Art Museum, the Baltimore Tattoo Museumand a John Waters-endorsed thrift shop called Killer Trash. (Indeed.)
The two-floor pinball museum offers a history lesson on the ground level, with vintage machines and an exhaustively researched look at the game, which began as yet another way for saloon-goers to gamble. Upstairs, an arcade of playable machines give visitors the opportunity to tilt to their heart’s content, with restored vintage games alongside elaborate ’80s and ’90s contraptions, including one game with horizontaland vertical playing fields.
Open Friday through Sunday, you wouldn’t spend your whole day here, but it’s a pleasant diversion when the harbor-side heat gets to be a bit too much this summer.
