Happy New Year to everyone from the Pennsylvania Coin Operated Hall of Fame and Museum! We are very much looking forward to 2015 being a great year full of fun with all of you!

Since we are starting up the new year, we figured it’s time to give you some updates on a lot of things going on.

1st and foremost, the museum is HAPPENING – 100% confirmed. We’re not quite ready to share just where it is located at yet as we have some work that has to get done ahead of making an announcement as to the exact location, but we will just say that if you drew a circle on a map that is, let’s say 15 or so miles around Heinz Field, the museum would be located within it. We are also close to a highway exit, and are going to exist within a shopping center. This is great because we’ll have PLENTY of free parking to allow you to save a few bucks when you come to get your game on.

Talking about the location, it’s REALLY big. In fact, it’s almost 25% bigger than we had originally envisioned the museum being. This is REALLY exciting as it will open the door for us to showcase a lot more games and pinball machines than we had imagined before. I think we are very comfortable saying that ANYONE that comes to our little museum will be able to find something cool to play.

We have a ton of work to do now as we push forward to the grand opening. I’m sure you are asking, “when will that be?” Answer: it’s still to be determined by a couple of things, but I’m 99.99% sure it will be before summer. Check out this space often as we will be posting regular updates on this, including how you can be part of the VIP opening ahead of the grand opening. 

Things are going to start moving fast, so if you have interest in what we are doing, then it’s time for you to start checking our space out a bit more often as we will be providing regular updates moving forward. There’s a lot to do right now, but Ed and I are steaming ahead at full speed to bring you this great museum. Follow along and be part of this.

Here’s a few pictures of the location. As you can see, there’s a LOT of space to play with here! We can’t wait to fill it up!
