Visitor Tips and News About Silverball Pinball Museum
Silverball Pinball Museum
Definitely a lot of fun -- especially for us old-timers.[Matti, 12/15/2016]
Owner Rob Ilvento grew up playing pinball in Asbury's Park's old Casino arcade, now a rusted-out hulk. He made a small fortune in fast food chicken, started buying pinball machines, then opened his museum only a few doors away from the old Casino. The museum holds 182 machines, from the 1930s to the 1990s -- including Super Score, a pinball-themed pinball machine -- and has a section set aside for Skee-Ball and arcade video games as well.
