Submitted by on 1, December 3, 2009 – 2:00 pmNo Comment

PPM-Major-Wood1webThe Lucky JuJu Pinball Gallery has expanded onto Webster Street, morphing into the brand-new Pacific Pinball Museum that opened a few weeks back.

The museum’s got more than 90 playable, historic machines, including 15 woodrails and 20 wedgeheads and additional games representing early pinballs from several private collections, the museum’s website says. It also boasts some eye-popping wall murals created by museum board member Dan Fontes, with help from Ed Cassel and a host of volunteers.

Meanwhile, the art exhibits will continue in what proprietor Michael Schiess calls the museum’s “Back 40.” “Found Object Romance,” an exhibit of paintings by Dan Caven, opens with a reception from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. this Friday, December 4. Caven is a Bay Area artist who was most recently involved with the neon department at The Crucible in Oakland. His show is open through December 30.

The museum is now at 1510 Webster Street, and it’s open from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday and form 2 p.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday. Admission, which is good for play on all the machines, all day, is $15 for adults and $7.50 for kids under 12, and $10 for adults and $5 for kids under 12 on Friday and Saturday evenings. The museum’s phone number is 205-9793.
