Playing Pinball was a massive pastime before radios, televisions, computers, and smartphones came in and changed the way we entertained ourselves.
At the Budapest Pinball Museum, which is the city’s No 1 museum on Tripadvisor, visitors can see pinball machines from the 1800s to now.
At this quirky museum, visitors can try their skills on up to 160 pinball machines.
Every machine is playable except Hercules, the world’s largest pinball machine.
But don’t you worry, for you can take a selfie with it.
Believe it or not, the Pinball Museum in Budapest is more popular with tourists than Heroes Square, Buda Castle, or the Liberty Bridge!
