The Basics

There’s a significant charge to enter the Krakow Pinball Museum, with family tickets available at a discount. That gets you a wristband good for all-day entry, meaning you can pop out to eat, sightsee, or check out of your accommodation, then return for more fun on the machines. All games are on free play mode, meaning you can play for as long as you like without a single coin, and options run the gamut from Indiana Jones to the Addams Family.

A Short History of Pinball

Pinball originates from an old-fashioned European wooden game known as bagatelle. Players pulled a lever to release balls then moved the board to steer them into scoring slots. The earliest electronic versions featured bumpers but the invention of the flipper in 1947 revolutionized gameplay. In the 1970s circuit boards enabled a new level of play, with light and sound effects, and it’s these immersive pinball machines that the Krakow Pinball Museum celebrates.
