Pinball Arcade Collection
The Hollywood Pinball & Arcade Museum is made up of a vintage video arcade as well as over 35 60s-era pinball machines for hourly play. The pinball machines once made up a collection for Omaha native and pinball enthusiast, Bill Placek. As described by new machine owner, Larry Richling, "The pinball machines were in every room of his (Plasek's) house."
The games are all fashioned by Gottlieb and Williams companies and have been brought to their original working order for the general public to enjoy.
Bagatelle is a billiards-style table game that offered amusement and entertainment as early as the 1820s. The object was to shoot balls into holes guarded by pegs or pins. Penalties were incurred in pins were knocked down. Originally played in France, Bagatelle games grew in popularity across continents and in taverns across America. Boards were originally simple in style but later were colorfully painted in a variety of themes. Bagatelle eventually led to the development of Pachinko and pinball machines.
We're pleased to showcase a number of rare, vintage Bagatelle games, seen along the upper walls of the video arcade room.
