(Thanks to Sevenout for the tip!)
I’m not sure how many pinball museums there are out there these days but there seem to be enough that I’ve lost track. As I have said before, when it comes to museums, one about pinball or video games interests me more than peeking at artifacts through a glass case but that’s my personal taste. A little while back we reported that the National Pinball Museum in Washington D.C. had to close after they lost their lease, being open for merely half a year. But the pinball games nor the passion for them disappeared so David Silverman found a new place to store his massive collection of machines and it will be open to the public on January 14th 2012 near Baltimore’s Inner Harbour. He has 12,000 sq. ft. of space to fill and hundreds of games to pick from (not to mention for him to maintain which has to be no easy task).
More details can be found via this great article at ESPN.com, which even takes a step further to mention Wizard of Oz Pinball which is coming in March.
