Pinball museum coming to Georgetown
Pinball is coming to the Shops at Georgetown Park.
David Silverman, the Silver Spring man who had long dreamed of opening a museum dedicated to all things pinball said Friday that he hopes to open the National Pinball Museum this September. It will be housed in the 17,000-square-foot space that used to be occupied by an FAO Schwartz toy store. Renovations are underway.
Silverman, who has nearly 900 pinball machines in his personal collection, could never find the funding or the right space for a museum. Four months ago, representatives from Georgetown Park contacted him and a deal was eventually struck. Silverman has already spent $20,000 and said he's appealing to pinball lovers for more support.
Kathryn Arvis, specialty leasing representative for the mall, said the museum will be a wonderful addition to the shops.
