Baltimore is now the new home of the National Pinball Museum, and we couldn’t be happier. Where else can you get the chance to play pinball machines modeled after The Creature from the Black Lagoon, Guns N’ Roses, and Star Trek: The Next Generation? Plus, there are a ton of pristine vintage machines, like 4 Belles (1954), Jack ’N Jill (1948), and more. And if having a bunch of amazing pinball machines you can actually play wasn’t enough, they’ve got classes on topics like pinball maintenance and restoration so you can take your nerd game to the next level.
