The National Pinball Museum opened to the public on December 4, 2010. Shortly after 10 AM, curator David Silverman unlocked the gates to allow a small crowd to enter. Soon visitors were exploring the history of pinball and playing dozens of games in the pay-to-play and exhibit areas.
Following a brief Thanksgiving break, a crew of volunteers, staff, and contractors resumed feverish preparations for the Grand Opening of the National Pinball Museum on December 4, 2010. I joined the volunteers for a second weekend and was impressed by the progress.
