Museum founder David Silverman owns more than 800 pinball machines; roughly 200 of them are on display at his National Pinball Museum. The museum is closing Sept. 5.
The National Pinball Museum is likely moving to Baltimore by year's end after it lost its lease in Georgetown and couldn't find another affordable space in Washington, according to the Associated Press.
Museum founder David Silverman says he is negotiating a lease for a building near Baltimore's Inner Harbor. He adds Baltimore city is proving to be more receptive of his museum than the District.
The museum opened last December in the Shops at Georgetown Park. But the mall's owner plans to renovate the building and told Silverman he had to go. He hopes to finalize a Baltimore deal by the end of September.
The museum's last day in Georgetown is Sept. 5. Admission to the museum is free. Silverman owns about 800 pinball machines and has more than 200 on exhibit.
