[April 29, 2014]  ATLANTA — Come and misspend your youth all over again — one quarter at a time — at Atlanta's newest Route 66 attraction: the Rt. 66 Arcade Museum.

Opening Thursday, the Rt. 66 Arcade Museum houses over 40 vintage pinball and video games, including a rare, flipper-less, wooden-cased pinball game, circa 1936; an original Pac-Man video game; and many others. Nearly all the machines are operable and can be played for only a quarter.

The museum is decorated with several dozen framed, vintage pinball "back-glasses" that are colorful representations of this graphic art form.

The Rt. 66 Museum is at 114 SW Arch St., with its actual entrance around the corner on Race Street. The museum is open to the public Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Admission is free, and donations are greatly appreciated.
