The Baltimore Sun reports the museum is opening on Jan. 14 in the old Chocolate Factory building on Water Street, near the Inner Harbor. Visitors will take a tour of the first-floor history gallery, which traces the development of pinball from the 18th century.

They can then play games, dating back to the 1940s, on the second floor.

Museum founder David Silverman says he hopes to eventually add a theater, classrooms and additional displays at the site.

The museum opened in 2010 in the Shops at Georgetown Park, but lost its lease less a year later and couldn't find another affordable space in Washington.
