Pinball Museum 

Jim Dietrick claims Pinball is as representative of American culture as baseball and apple pie. In an effort to highlight the historical and cultural significance of the pinball machine, he and fellow Pinball enthusiast Michael Schiess, have collaborated on the Pacific Pinball Exposition to be held in San Rafael, California, October 5-7, 2007.

The show features hundreds of vintage machines and amusement devices from around 1800 to 2007 Hundreds of pinball machines will be set on free play for attendees to play and enjoy and there will be several rare, antique pinball machines from the 1930s and earlier on display. Exhibits will illustrate the history of pinball, the science and physics of pinball, the evolution of the game and its mechanisms. Free seminars will also be offered on how to buy and setup a pinball machine, electromechanical and electronic pinball troubleshooting and restoration, and the secrets of pinball wizardry.

All profits will go into building a permanent museum for pinball in the USA, the Neptune Beach Amusement Museum, focused on teaching art, history, and science through pinball and other amusement machines.
