Old-Fashioned Enterta

Pinball enthusiasts won't want to miss the Pacific Pinball Museum. This is truly a one-of-a-kind place offering 90 working, playable, historic pinball machines. The nonprofit organization’s mission is teaching science, art, and history—all though pinball. They host the annual Pacific Pinball Expo, which is the largest pinball show in the world. Alameda is home to an art deco movie theater. Designed by architect Timothy L. Pflueger, the Alameda Theater was originally built in 1932 and later restored and expanded, reopening in 2008. It now serves as the center of an eight-screen theatre.

Haunted Historic Ship

The USS Hornet Museum docks at the historic Alameda Point on the Bay. Built in the 1940, the aircraft carrier is designated as a National Historic Landmark. A unique tour allows visitors to board the ship and view exhibits that include information and artifacts from its missions. It is said to be one of the most haunted warships in the American Navy fleet. Countless reports of ghostly and creepy events onboard the ship gives credence to the tales. The museum was featured on several paranormal shows, including “Scariest Places on Earth” and “Ghost Hunters".
