Q. You call it an Arcade Museum? Can you play the games or just look at them?
A. You can play all the games.
Q. Who’s games are there?
A. The Museum features the Talbot’s private collection as well as a few loaned by some other friends of the museum.
Q. What does it cost?
A. The Videogames are all on freeplay so you can play all you want for just $5.00.
Pinball, darts and some other older arcade games take quarters.
Q. Why would anybody open an Arcade Museum in the middle of nowhere?
A. There are actually a lot of reasons. Here are a few.
- This is where we live and a great place to visit.
- We wanted something fun to do on the weekend.
- There are not many roadside attractions between Tucson and El Paso.
- Collecting Arcade Games is a fun, growing hobby that almost anyone can get into.
- We want to preserve the games of the past so future generations can also enjoy them.
- You just don’t get to play these much anymore.
- More reasons coming soon.
Q. What kinds of games do you have?
A. So far we have games from the 60′s, 70′s, 80′s, 90′s and even newer. Most didn’t work when we got them.
We have a smaller space now so we rotate games in to provide a better variety.
Q. Who is responsible for this?
A. See below.
You can usually find Chris Talbot here on Saturday, playing and fixing some games.
