A Visit To The Roanoke Pinball Museum and MORE...

A few weeks ago, I took the kids to our local Science Museum because our yearly membership was about to run out.  We decided to make a day out of it, but because the Science Museum is W-E-A-K, I also decided to treat them to the Pinball Museum, the Candy Store, and Lunch.
This was my kids FIRST time visiting the Pinball Museum.
The entrance fee is FREE for ages 0-5, $6.78 for ages 6-8, and $12.40 for ages 9+.
The ticket prices allows you to play up to 45 pinball machines unlimited.  
The museum is dedicated to the science and history behind Pinball.  
It's set up very retro-ey.  I think.  I loved the score board that they keep for the highest scores.
We almost had the entire place to ourselves.
I snuck a few downtown photos, from the windows, as the kids played.
I am not entirely sure what takes place at this bar, but Jax was playing some sort of game on that television.  
My only complaint about the Museum is that some of the games seemed a tad inappropriate.  My kids didn't even seem to notice though OR ignored it.  
We took a break and had lunch.  The boys had hot dogs from the wiener stand.  Again... another "first".  
Lilah, of course, didn't want a hot dog, so we left the boys at the wiener stand and walk over to grab her a slice of pizza. Check out the size of the pizza box and the slices of pizza.  Insane!
Of course no trip downtown is complete without a visit to "The Candy Store".
They were each allowed to spend $10.00 there.  
They had the coolest masks, so I told them to grab their favorite and try it on!  It made for a great photo.  
After their bellies and candy bags were full, we headed BACK to the Pinball Museum.  It was an eventful day, for sure!


  1. Sounds like a fun day. I would like the Pinball Museaum, and my boys since they enjoy discovering the "retro" things from their parent's childhood.

    1. Yes. The retro life has some "blast from the past" moments that all people NEED to experience.
