Albany, New York, native Jim Bruso wanted to bring fun and tourists to his adopted hometown of Corbin, Kentucky, so he decided to open a pinball museum in town. Sitting right next to his ice cream shop, Sweeties, the museum features over 50 pinball machines you can play all day for one flat fee.
Corbin needed something new and fun to bring tourists into town and give locals something to do that wasn’t in Lexington or Knoxville. So, he began collecting pinball machines.
An interactive museum, guests can pay $15 for adults or $13 for children 10 years old or younger. They can play any pinball game they want, or all of them, all day. There’s even a brand new Mandalorian pinball game that was released over the summer.
From Seattle to Las Vegas, Asbury Park, New Jersey, to Alameda, California, there are pinball museums all over the United States. Now Corbin joins those big cities with its own amazing pinball museum.
The museum is open every day, except Tuesday.
Sweeties next door offers ice cream scoops and waffle cones, as well as “outrageous milkshakes," that include a variety of delicious ingredients. Sundaes are available too, including the classic banana split and the Rise and Shine made with coffee ice cream. Snow cones, floats, and mini doughnuts round out a menu perfect for a hungry crew playing exciting pinball machines and having a great time.
