Located in an old storefront with blacked out windows on the Rockwellian Main Street of Beacon New York, this ‘museum‘ is a bit spooky at first. Once you’re inside, you’ll quickly forget this century. All the 1970s vintage pinball machines, early video games, and side-showish arcade games are present in mint condition. I brought my ten year-old son, thinking the experience would make him more appreciative of his modern gaming systems. But the flashing lights of the seventies arcade had him mesmerized. Ten dollars gets you an hour of unlimited play and just showing up gets you an in-depth tour, including opening up the machines to expose their clever secrets. [photo via RetroThing]
