Well worth driving to Nhill to check out this unique museum and play some of the two dozen or so pinball and video machines here.

Bring your $1 coins because all machines are playable. Teens will love the challenge of old school games, and there’s brand new machines with sound and graphic effects. Free to enter and it also has unique memorabilia on the walls.

We stopped after seeing the sign. Well worth stopping and seeing the best collection of pinballs I've ever seen. The guy was knowledgeable and passionate, with old, rare and new. Thanks for turning them all on to show!
