Postby pennymachines » Tue Aug 18, 2015 12:14 pm

Running until Saturday 31 October, the South Shields Museum Seaside Exhibition,
includes a large collection of old coin-operated amusement machines which you can enjoy playing. Test your skill with a pinball or dare to see what the butler saw.

Could be worth a trip. Be an expensive day out at 5 old pennies for £1. :)

I have made the 240 mile round trip twice to see this exhibition since it opened and it is worth every penny :cool:
It has been 2 years in the planning to get all these machines ready for public use, with a lot of hard work behind the scenes by the collections owner !!GOODJOB!!
I think 5 pennies for a pound is quite good considering it is free to enter the museum !!HOORAY!!
Well done. !WORSHIPFULL!

Looks like a nice collection of machines and a rare Myers Road Test also.
Are there any more pictures? I don't think I'll be able to get there for the exhibition.
Well done. Maybe it's time for a show like this in London.

I can't believe I never knew about this and it's on my doorstep. Guess my weekend's planned. :)

Not bad value for some old-time fun. Skinflints take their own pennies purchased at a more favourable rate. \|\/|/
All proceeds go to the museum apparently.

4/- a play ain't bad, but I can understand punters going to South Shields via Brighton where you can buy your coppers cheaper !!IDEA!!

I went to the exhibition just after it opened, before the school holidays (so the little darlings hadn't had time to break anything). It is a really good display with a wide variety of different machines and all in a really good state of repair.
