Το Μουσείο των Φλίπερ (Museum of Pinball), που βρίσκεται στο Μπάνινγκ της California, houses one of the largest collections of pinball machines. Sadly, this amazing toy museum is closing its doors for good and will be auctioning off more than 1.100 pinball machines.
The museum's principal owner, Mr Chuck Casey, has confirmed that he has been unable to secure a new location for his collection and will now be forced to auction off all the machinery and games. However, this means that collectors around the world could potentially own one of the pinball games. You could get one if you want to participate in the auction.
This huge museum opened in January 2016. However, the space where it is housed does not belong to it and its owner wishes to convert it into a hemp farm. The solution was to move the museum somewhere else. During the duration των διαπραγματεύσεων για τη transport of the museum in Palm Springs, California, the company faced several problems that it could not overcome.
As Mr. Casey put it: "All the efforts to relocate, or to sponsor or sell to a collector, have unfortunately failed. Therefore, all toys will be auctioned in the coming months. There will be an official announcement. You will be able to bid online and / or in person. The auction will take place in Banning at the Pinball Museum. Pins and vids are only sold through auction ".
It seems that the non-profit organization of the museum had to leave due to the cost and time of renovating a new building, storage costs and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
