EUROPE'S LEADING PINBALL MUSEUM

GOING INTO
HIBERNATION

From midnight (10 November) , in accordance with the new regulations for recreational facilities and institutions such as theatres, museums, and zoos, unfortunately we are also going into hibernation for at least 30 days.

BE PART OF OUR PINBALL TRIBE! 🙂

There’s no need for secret handshake. Your T-shirt will be a telltale sign that you are proud of your pinball enthusiasm, your belonging to the same ‘tribe’.

OUR VENUE ROOM IN MUSEUM

In the future, we would like to host you in an even more comfortable environment, further expanding choices for our guests.

PINBALLS ARE TIME MACHINES

It was more than 30 ago that legendary Data East marketed a pinball called the ‘Time Machine’. This name has got a symbolic meaning ever since. Today all pinballs have transformed into a time machine, remnants of an old age. Their natural environment, the arcade has been outdated since then, yet we can find an ever increasing number of pinballs at collectors.

The moment that dwells in our memories will never pass, never fade away: the moment as we were standing in front of the machines or waiting our turn at the arcade. Beyond the lights, colours and sounds of pinballs, a mystical children’s dreamworld is still shaping for us. A dreamworld that is still alive in us adults, even as we read this.

This dreamworld, these lights, these colours and sounds will be reawaken by our ‘time machines’, at our carefully selected exhibition. Our inner Child is inviting us for an encounter we will never forget.

"As the quotation from the movie 'Copland' says: "Two kind of people in the world - pinball people & video game people". Well, this weekend at Arcadia will most probably be a great opportunity for both group." - index.hu

Budapest Pinball Museum deploys more than 140 machines (pinball, arcade video cabinets and other games), making the venue one of the biggest ongoing pinball collections in Europe. All of our games are set to free play. Some of the exhibition’s older pieces qualify as truly unique antiques, like the first pinball machines ever made with flippers, dating back to 1947. Some of pinball’s predecessors are also on display, such as the unique bagatelles from the 1880s. It is the most popular museum in Hungary, usually in the top 10 out of some 600 Budapest tourist attractions on Tripadvisor. The place was featured, among others, in The New York Times, Sydney Morning Herald, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, BBC, CNN, and some 100 other leading international media outlets.
