      SEATTLE (AP) -- For $13, you can play pinball until your arms fall off at Seattle's working pinball museum.
      The two-story storefront in Seattle's International District is filled with games from every era from the 1960s to today.
      The museum started in 2010 as one couple's obsession and grew to be something they wanted to share with others.
      Cindy and Charlie Martin keep the equipment fixed up, offer brief historical information and "fun" ratings on small cards above the games and sell snacks, beer and soda to visitors from around the world.
      The Seattle museum is one of a handful around the country celebrating a pastime that seems to be in the midst of revival.
