Fernandina Pinball Museum Opens on Sadler Road

The Fernandina Pinball Museum, Inc. is dedicated to preserving the legacy of pinball from the early years of the twentieth century to the present. Mechanical pinball machines debuted in the 1930s and are still around in electro-mechanical models today. Many baby boomers recall happy times playing these machines for a quarter a game back in the 1950s and 60s, spending hours honing their skills to get high scores that paid off in free games, tickets or sometimes even cash.

Today, pinball fans can relive some of that past, but also enjoy the newer machines which are as sophisticated as any electronics on the market. Pinball incorporates so many disciplines: art, music, theater, science, and technology. The new machines being produced today represent almost a hundred years of progress.

The Fernandina Pinball Museum invites the public to come play pinball from the past and present in a great environment where you can play as many machines as you like for as long as you like for one low price. For more information and hours call (904) 435-8424 or visit www.fbpinball.com. The Fernandina Pinball Museum is located at 2106 Sadler Road.
