Silver Spring Resident David Silverman is currently building a pinball machine at the Shops at Georgetown Park, Vox Populi reports. Silverman hopes the museum, which currently consists of 50 pinball machines displayed in a warehouse in his backyard, will be ready to open in Georgetown in September.
Residents who stop by the pinball museum won’t solely spend their visit playing this long-beloved arcade game. They can also learn about pinball’s history and how pinball machines are constructed.
According to the Georgetown Metropolitan, a neighborhood blogger, Silverman is looking for financial support to allow for these amenities. He plans to charge $25 for admission to the museum, a fee which doesn’t include the cost of using the machines.
