Pinball Museum Krakow (Pinball Museum)

Posted by

Pinball Museum Krakow is a museum of pinball and video games. It’s not just about looking at the gaming equipment, but first and foremost you can play. You buy a ticket for about 9 euros and then can gamble on dozens of pinball and arcade games all day. So it’s more or less an arcade with pinball and video games from the 20th century at a flat rate. We liked the retro experience.

About 30 years ago pinball machines were very popular in pubs and discos all over the world. The older readers of this article surely remember it. In the Cracow Pinball Museum there are dozens of pinball machines and arcade games.
