Pacific Pinball Museum to Occupy Restored Alameda Carnegie Library

23 December, 2013

-By Holly O'Dell



The Pacific Pinball Museum (PPM) has found a new home at the 1902 Carnegie library in Alameda, California. Vacant since 1998, the Classic Revival temple-style building features brick columns, stained-glass windows, a barrel-vault atrium ceiling, and arched skylight. Muller & Caulfield Architects has been performing upgrades to the building, but PPM will be responsible for completing the restoration and bringing the Carnegie up to current code requirements.

“It is extremely important to our mission that we occupy a building of historical significance,” PPM board chairman Larry Zartarian said in a statement. “The 1902 Carnegie Library is a testament to American education and an ideal location for the PPM to educate visitors about art, science, and history as related to pinball and its uniquely American heritage.”

Dedicated to preserving pinball history, science, and art, the museum will feature nearly 1,000 machines, along with exhibits, classrooms, and community space.
