Here at The Pennsylvania Coin Operated Hall Of Fame And Museum, we have a lot to get done to give you the best of vintage video games and pinball machines.

As you may or may not be aware, there's a great deal of cost and legal requirements for setting up a museum like The Pennsylvania Coin Operated Hall Of Fame And Museum. In order to get things up and running, we're hopeful that we can count on you, the gaming enthusiasts and the citizens of our fine community, to help us through some fundraising campaigns that we will be launching. This said, we don't expect you to merely donate for free! While we will take any donation from a single dollar to $50,000, we have laid out some special plans to give back to those of you that can afford to help us get our feet under us and get up and running.  

The funds raised in this campaign will serve to start the development of many aspects of our development and buildout.  They include, but are not limited to:

  • Building Safety Modifications (Emergency Exits, Fire Safety)
  • Handicap Accessibility
  • Legal registrations and licensing
  • Electrical Modifications To The Building
These are the entry level operations that have to happen in order to get the Pennsylvania Coin Operated Hall Of Fame And Museum not only to open it's doors, but to open in a professional, safe and enjoyable fashion.

Read about the games that will be featured in our museum and our curator, Ed Beeler, in a recent interview he did with Retro Magazine HERE.

Risks and challenges

While we have a good business plan and professional project management team in place for the development of this museum, like any project it can be subject to delays caused by a wide array of issues. With this initial fundraising money, delays could come from state or local government agencies not processing paperwork for licenses and zoning in an expedient manner. As with any physical building project, you are always subject to delays from the building teams hired to complete the specified work.
