Replay Amusement Museum - Atlas Obscura

Replay Amusement Museum

Play over 120 retro arcade games and pinball machines at this throwback museum. 


Filled with the pings, dings, whirrs, and bells of a retro arcade, Replay Amusement Museum is buzzing with nostalgia. 

Founded in 2014 by Brian and Becky Cheaney, the museum began as the couple’s private collection and now features over 120 pinball machines and retro arcade games, from Street Fighter and Donkey Kong Jr. to Frogger, Gauntlet, and many more.

Grab the joystick and help guide Pac-Man away from those dreaded side-eyeing ghosts, as he gobbles up pellets and cherries along the way. Or try your hand at a slightly weather-worn Paul Bunyan pinball game that dates to 1968. Equipped with a rare six flippers, the game was manufactured by D. Gottlieb & Co., a popular 20th-century Chicago gaming company that went defunct in 1996.

Other throwbacks include Asteroids Deluxe, a vector graphic arcade game from 1981 created as a much harder sequel to the Atari version. The world’s largest pinball machine, Hercules by Atari, turns heads, and the Addams Family pinball machine and Moonwalker arcade game rank as the most popular.

The museum sees roughly 30,000 visitors a year and has grown over time to include donated games from other museums and others from public or private collections.
