SUMMERFUN

From the Easter holidays to autumn, the motto is: Summerfun! During this time, our focus is on the LEGO®-exhibition, pinball machines, large arcade machines and, of course, the outdoor area with selected midi golf courses, a play area for the youngest in the courtyard and the eitle Kinderkram snack station.

Currently, it is not necessary to book an appointment during the summer joy, but we recommend visiting in good weather.

You can find all the attractions of summer joy here!

Link to Wintergames

WINTERGAMES

From the first of November until spring, the motto is: Wintergames! During this time, our focus is on the retro video games, old computers and, of course, pinball. The outdoor area is closed, the snack station is in emergency mode and the eitle Kinderkram works with greatly reduced capacity. Also the museum is only slightly heated.

Access is only possible after booking an appointment!

You can find all the attractions of the Wintergames here!

We're glad you found us! The eitle Kinderkram is an excursion destination for the whole family in Neulengbach. It was born out of Flipperstein Schmatz's passion for collecting.

In the warmer time of the year we are open according to the motto "Summerfun" (Flipper & LEGO® ), when it gets cooler, the motto is "Wintergames" (pinball & retro video games) - which attractions are accessible in which mode can be found in detail in the respective sections.

Although we are a "museum", you also have the opportunity to try out many things. For an extra charge, you can use all switched on electrical devices (such as pinball, video games, etc.) without coin slot paiment.

We specialize in complete collections of topics, i.e. we always have complete series of products to see.

In the "cowshed" you will find e.g. all xDSL modems from A1,
although these have nothing to do with our actual topic.

The museum is one of Daniel Schmatz's hobbies originated,
and is also operated by him.

We are easy to get to with our own vehicle (of
course with free parking) and by train, since
Neulengbach is directly by the motorway A1 and
the Railway Westbahn.

By the way:
the Volvo 244GL is also on display with us...

Of course, you can also play pinball with us. With the "Free Spins" package, it is possible to play without a coin slot according to the motto "switch after 3 games". The turned on pinball machines vary depending on the current opening mode of the vain children's stuff. If you want to play a specific device, you can play it at special prices outside of regular opening hours by appointment - you can find more details here: Extragames.

The 8 bit computer scene is experiencing a renewal sauce. When it became clear that the vain children's stuff should also be open in winter, but that the LEGO® area could not be operated in the cold season, we thought about what we could offer instead. The decision was easy: Commodore® computers are needed! In 2023, for example, the classics of the legendary manufacturer were purchased and will be available for our guests during the Winter Games.

Of course, the history of the PC is close to Flipperstein Schmatz's heart: after all, he earns his living by doing computer work on these computers.

LEGO® Technic

We are showing all LEGO®-Technic-sets, which were produced by the LEGOGroup® . However, we do not limit our collection to models from catalogues: we add all sets from the DACTA® /Education®-series too!

In other words: you can see everything with the word "Technic" on the box, with motors, light- or sound-elements. This sums up to about 1200 sets with over 400.000 elements!

Foto LEGO-Technic-Vitrinenwand
all LEGO®-Technic-collections

In the year 1956 the first bricks with lightbulbs were released to the market. Gears followed 1966 from the company LEGO® and were distributed by Samsonite® in the USA. The technology was improved rapidly and got finer and finer. That is why we can show over 1200 sets with technology background.

Everything with light, motor or sound.

All technical LEGO®-sets from light to sound over motors and gearboxes to air pressurized clamping bricks are exhibited in the eitle Kinderkram Neulengbach.

 

Foto LEGO-Light-and-Sound

Since 1977, the term "expert builder" has become a synonym for construction kits with gears and technic like in real life. From the steering over gearboxes to the engine model with piston movement, everything can be found here.

All classic Technic-sets.

We exhibit all sets the first LEGO®-Technic wave from the beginning to 1998 - this also includes sets of other series that have a technical background - there are more than 330 an display here!

Foto LEGO-Technic-Klassik

At the end of the 90s, the nubs dissapeard more and more from the LEGO®-Technic world. The waves went (and go) high in the brick-fan-community. Lift arms and panels have replaced the classic bricks and give the models a very different and new look.

All modern Technic-Sets.

We have over 700 sets of the latest LEGO®-Technic generation on display. Those sets consist mainly of lift arms. Until the year 2020 we are complete, on the last years of models with many functions we continue to collect, of course.

LEGO® trains

We show all the LEGO®-Train sets that the LEGOGroup® has ever released. We are not satisfied with the sets in which trains stand on rails: we show all sets that contain a train, a rail system or even just parts of it. In any case, the complete set including train, rails and accessories can be seen in our showcases!

Foto Electronic-Train
all LEGO®-train-collections

The older friends of the self-connecting-brick know them from their youth: blue rails with white sleepers. Trains moved from the children's room, under the sofa, in the living room and occasionally in the kitchen. Battery-operated 4.5 volt trains run day and night. Or was it even the electric 12 volt trains with busbars in the middle?

Everthing from the blue train-era.

We have all 107 produced setss of the first LEGO®-rail-system on display. From the "electric motor with cable cords" from 1966 to the "ramp with wagon" from 1978.

Foto LEGO-Güterbahnhof

At the beginning of the 80s, the most ingenious LEGO®-train-system of all times arrived: countless switching elements for points, signals, decouplers and barriers are built on the legendary 12 volt transformer and the entire train world is operated remotely.

Everything from the grey train-era.

Although only 6 years new sets were released in the market, this system is still in enormous popular today. All 50 produced sets of this series can be admired in our showcases. From the "passenger train with stop" from 1980 to the "container station" from 1986.

Foto LEGO-Güterzug

Train fans had to wait 5 years, until something new came. We were all enthusiastic about the new appearance of the rails with integrated powerlines on which the gray "Metro-Liner" whizzed along. Commercials on TV made our mouths water and our pockets emty...

Everything from the 9-volt-train-era.

All 95 sets of the child-friendly LEGO®-train-system can be admired in our museum. From the "Freight Train Complete Set" from 1991 to the "LEGO® Factory Hobby Train" from 2007.

Foto LEGO-My-own-Train

But things turned out differently: batteries returned to the train in 2006. In addition, there is the infrared remote control and plastic rails on which trains with large molded parts roared along. A child-friendly design was the way to the future of LEGO®-trains.

Everything from the IR-train-era.

Both generations of the light-remote-controlled train series are fully shown in the eitle Kinderkram. 28 sets with incredible details: from the "Freight Train Luxury Set" from 2006 to the "Winter Holiday Train" from 2016.

Foto großes LEGO-Güterzug-Set

The batteries and the rail system have remained, the technology changed: the current train sets are radio-controlled by Blu-Tooth. The series have split: Game sets like the 60197 to play with and collector's sets - in our museum you can see both!

Everything from the radio-controlled-train-era.

We have all sets of the current train-system for your amusement. From the "passenger train" from 2018 to the "crocodile locomotive" from 2020. Of course, we ar expanding each year with the product-pallet.

Foto LEGO-Verlade-Set

For us also many other sets are part of the collection goal in the field of trains: all sets on whose instructions or packaging a train can be seen, all sets with rail systems, small train workers from the Advent calendar and of course everything from the Monorail®-system.

Everything else about trains.

In total, we exhibited over 400 train sets. Everything LEGO® has ever produced in this theme: from the LEGOLAND®-train to the 40th anniversary-set, from the railway worker to the roller coaster, from truck transported rails to the gold mine - you will find that all with us!

LEGO® MOCs

A museum with LEGO®-elements also includes MOCs. Meaning: masterpieces built by the museums operator. Unfortunately, Pinbrick Schmatz is not creative at all, so it looks sad in this regard...

However, he tends to large, clumsy buildings which sometimes spread over several floors and are scratching on world records - you can see them here!

all LEGO®-MOC-collections

For a completely different project, several thousand 1x2 studded bricks were purchased. Unfortunately, nothing came of the project. So what to do with these elements? Stacking and bending them would be a possibility - from this a nomen was built, which is now a train-spiral. Well, there were maide actually two: The highest LEGO®-train spiral with 160 inchs, and an even higher one...

Do you know where the only real LEGO®-train looping built from the real LEGO®-rail system is located? Correct! It is in the eitle Kinderkram Neulengbach! Made from 11,264 elements, this 70 inch high monster is raced through by our stunt car. This is only kept on the rails by centrifugal force and derails only from time to time. On request, you can experience the project in action!

Otherwise, we still have a lot to do - of course this takes time in these dimensions - but have a look again in a few months...

BALLY® pinballs

In 1932, Raymond Moloney put a completely new device at the counter of a small retail store: a pinball. With this device, the Ballyhoo, without any technology, just a wooden box with nails hammered into it, on which a metal ball bounced off - the triumphal march of the pinball machine around the world has begun.

However, this series is not in the collection goal of the museum operator. He is more interested in the howling dogs, where light effects charm the player and loud digital sound numbs the ears. That's why we have all BALLY® pinball machines from 1984 on, where modern electronics have taken over the game control. We have 16 devices of this manufacturer to see, as well as those that were later produced by Midway® .

Foto Flipper
all BALLY®-collections

The first manufacturer of the legendary pinball machines from the USA: BALLY® ! This company laid the foundation for the worldwide pinball boom. However, the competition did not sleep and cracked down with new ideas and good marketing. Ultimately, BALLY-MIDWAY® was to be bought in the late 1980s...

All pinballs with the 6803-cpu.

16 devices have come into the market with the A084-91786-AH06 MPU, these are the pinball machines that really make fun to play. This series we have included in the collection. From the "Eight Ball Champ" from 1985 to the last real BALLY® pinball machine "Black Water 100", we have all on display. Of course, the BALLY®-logo can also be seen on later pinballs, which we all have as well - just look down...

DataEast® pinballs

Since 2022, we have been allowing the first glimpses into our DataEast® pinball collection. Although there are still 10 devices missing on the collection goal (due to the massive investments in the LEGO®-area this will be for a long time the case), but more than half of the devices are already there - even if a lot of them are in precarious condition.

Here are currently 15 pinball machines from this manufacturer on site. DataEast® copied the WILLIAMS® System 11, used themes from film and television, and produced many ingenious devices. From the "Laser War" to the "Maverick", devices of every generation can be viewed in the "beet cellar".

exotic-pinball-collection

There is no collection in which aren't items that don't really fit in. We want to show complete series of devices, but there are also pinball machines, which you simply have to own, without buying all models of the manufacturer.

Not-fitting pinballs.

In any case, everything on which "Star Trek" is written must be included. An "Orbitor 1", "Austin Powers" and "Caveman" show what STERN® and GOTTLIEB® came up with...

WILLIAMS® pinballs

The real trauma of Flipperstein Schmatz is, of course, the WILLIAMS® pinball machine. In his childhood, the model "Taxi" stood in the coffee house in the neighboring village. Here the first encounter with a device of this ingenious design took place - a slightly traumatizing one can be noted - but that is another story.

As early as 2002, the museum operator bought its first pinball machine from this manufacturer. In the "Eitle Spielhalle" (the predecessor project of the museum) 20 devices of this kind have already been in operation, today 81 pins of this manufacturer are exhibited and also partly playable.

Foto Flipper
all WILLIAMS®-collections

Not the first, but by far the most innovative manufacturer when it comes to electronic pinball is WILLIAMS® . The pinballs with the robust electronics of this company soon took the lead and laid the foundation for the success of WMS® .

All System 9 pinballs.

It got really interesting with the third generation of electronic pinball machines: 3 devices came in the market with the System 9 - all three are exhibited by us: "Space Shuttle" from 1984, as well as "Sorcerer" and "Comet" from 1985.

Foto Flipper

When it comes to fast music in the game with good sound effects, you can't ignore this technology. The game is cheerful, squeaky and accompanied by lighting effects. Cozy pinball rounds without long thinking about where to meet: just play the ramps alternately and then on the flashing targets...

All System 11 pinballs.

This electronics is in the devices from "High Speed" to "Bugs Bunny". There are 4 revisions that have been installed in a total of 30 devices - we have them all! With each version, the music playback has been further improved. This technology is also installed in the pinball machines with the BALLY® logo from the model "Transporter" onwards.

Foto Flipper

Even though the first 3 models were delivered with the classic text displays, this technology has laid the foundation for a new ideas of pinball: Williams Pinball Control has put up images on the displays for the first time, delivered animations and enabled previously unthinkable actions on the playing field.

All WPC Pinballs.

The first WPC generation started with "Funhouse" in 1990 and has given us 17 wonderful pinball machines. With "The Addams Family Special Collectors Edition" it was completed in 1994 - all 17 pinball machines of this technique are exhibited here.

Foto Flipper

If there was anything to complain about pinball in the 1980s and 1990s, it was the sound quality. It scratched and croaked when the pinball machine spoke to the player. But WMS has put an end to the noise: DCS® - the "Digital Compression System" has provided CD-quality sounds from the loudspeakers since 1993.

All WPC-Security pinballs.

It got even faster: with "World Cup Soccer '94" WPC-S has found its way into the gambling halls. The penultimate "real" pinball control is responsible for 13 pinball machines (which are all shown here) and is installed in the devices until "Jack-Pot" in 1995.

Foto Flipper

Even if the player has not noticed much of the last generation of pinball control, inside it looks quite different in the technically way. The boards were equipped with new semiconductors and designs, the electronics became even more robust and the game perfect. The devices of the late 90s are now traded more expensive than they cost new, and there are reasons for this...

All WPC-95 pinballs.

While darts and video games filled the arcades, pinball machines became less and less interesting for the peaople running them: mechanics have to be maintained, which is almost completely eliminated in video games. So, the last 15 pinball machines of the company WILLIAMS® have only been produced in small quantities. We exhibited them all up to the last one, the "Cactus Canyon".

Foto Flipper

From the "Holo-Pin", the developers have developed a revolutionary concept: a video pinball hybrid device. The steel ball is played in projections from the screen and interacts with the animations. In the pinball head sits now a PC that brings the device to life. Unfortunately, the sales figures were not as high as hoped, and the end of pinball has come...

All Pinball 2000 pinballs.

With "Revenge from Mars" and "Star Wars Episode 1" the pinball production of the last major manufacturer of pinballs came to an end in 1999. Wistful press conferences accompanied the downfall. Of course, we also have these 2 models in our collection.

personal computers

Since the main business area of our company is IT, we also show something with computers. In our museum you can see a PC from each "Intel® desktop CPU" generation with the corresponding Microsoft® operating system. This starts with the first IBM PC, the one that coined the term "IBM-compatible® ", and ends with the component systems distributed by "Eitle Computer". In future, there will be an operation in the network, where visitors will see how compatible Dos and Windows® really are.

In addition, there are many smaller collections, such as all PDAs produced by Psion® . You could say that we show everything that Daniel Schmatz sold in his youth and thus also shaped him. There is also a collection with all common data interfaces and data carriers of the last 50 years. Note: This collection is still under construction and has not yet been documented.

all WILLIAMS®-collections

Here you can see the "SpeedTouch USB® " - probably the most terrible ADSL model of all time. Talk to the museum operator about it - but be prepared for him to talk about it at length and emotionally... - oh yes: we show all A1 xDSL modems for the private sector - also these disaster versions.

You can't do everything, so we focus on PCs with Intel® -desktop-CPU. We have also exhibited these CPUs individually so that you can get an idea of the miniaturization of semiconductor technology over the last decades.

    Please note that during the "Summerfun" period, the retro video games are not playable, but can be visited, while during the "Wintergames" period, the LEGO® exhibition cannot be visited.
    Basically, the museum is open on many Sundays and public holidays, as well as on most school-free days with bad weather. On other days it is possible to rent for groups - see prices and opening hours.
  • Do I have to pay?
    Yes.
    • To enter the museum and the surrounding grounds, the "entrance fee" must be paid.
    • In order to be able to use electrical devices (pinball, air hockey, kiddy rides, video games, bowling machines, etc.) unlimited and without coin insertion, you can buy the "Freeplay" package.
    • If you don't ask for anything else at the checkout, you will automatically be charged for the "alles together" package. This warrantes the most joy within our visit.
    • Holders of the "Niederösterreich Card" have free admission (within the rules of the NÖ Card) and can book the "freeplay" on request.
    • Furthermore, there are some (few) activities that are associated with additional costs (eg demonstrations or guided tours) - see prices and opening hours.
  • Do I have to wear a mask?
    No.
    Currently, there is no obligation to wear mouth and nose protection - but this may change at short notice due to official requirements or for safety reasons that we consider relevant.

    • any device can be used repeatedly if another has been used in between
    • it is to be considerate of other visitors
  • Schaltet ihr den Flipper XY für mich ein?
    No, but...
    Basically, there are the intended devices to play. For enormous extra costs, it is possible to play a desired device outside of opening hours, as long as it is technically in order. You can discuss this with Pinbrick Schmatz on site or inquire by email.
  • Are there guided tours ?
    Yes.
    We offer guided tours, which can be booked depending on the capacity of the museum - we can confirm these from 4:30 pm (after admission):
    • Key points and history about the development of PCs and MS-DOS® and WINDOWS® .
    • The development and history of LEGO®-train sets.
    • The development and history of LEGO®-Technic sets.
    • The development and history of the BALLY®- and WILLIAMS®-pinball machine.
  • In what condition are the pinball machines? ?
    That differs.
    The pinball machines are partly revised and fully ready to play, partly only ready to play and partly as we got them. We attach great importance to the original condition and only change the delivery condition during restoration if this has safety reasons. Our devices are not polished to a high gloss.
  • In what condition are the LEGO®-sets?
    That differs.
    Some sets are heavily recorded or recreated from original LEGO® -parts. We try to stick to the original as much as possible, but do not rule out small deviations. We do not want to show new goods, but what is really done with toys.
  • Do you take good care of my children?
    No.
    We do not assume any duty of supervision! You take care of your family. Admission without adult accompaniment is possible from 14 years.
  • Do I have to come with a tie, or what should I wear ?
    No.
    Note that our museum is an old farm. Dress comfortably and wear sturdy shoes - you are among friends, there is no dress code (apart from trousers and waists - the museum operator is also excluded from this).
  • Is the museum air-conditioned?
    No.
    The museum is not air-conditioned - be aware that you will be exposed to temperatures similar to those outdoors when visiting.
  • Is the museum heated?
    Yes and no.
    In the "Summerfun" mode, there is no heating, during the "Wintergames" the museum is slightly tempered - in any case, dress very warmly!
  • May I eat in the museum ?
    Yes and no.
    In the courtyard it is allowed to eat food brought along, in the building only the consumption of food purchased in the "snack station" is permitted. Otherwise, only bottled water is currently permitted in the museum area, not even sweets!
  • Can I buy food from you ?
    Yes.
    Depending on the opening mode and weather conditions, the "snack station" offers food and drinks and, after pre-ordering, a selected vegetarian main course. Please call us and let us know on which day you need how many servings so that there are no misunderstandings.
  • Can you buy LEGO® sets ?
    Yes.
    There are selected new and used LEGO® -sets to buy from us. Our focus is on older and rare sets.
  • Can you buy LEGO® spare parts from you ?
    Yes.
    Basically, we offer spare parts from our extensive warehouse for sale. The unit price starts at 0.50 euros. Note that we are not fighting a price war. If you need several parts, please contact a spare parts dealer. For missing items, buying it sometimes makes sense when visiting the museum, as you save yourself the shipping costs.
  • Why do you always say LEGO® - don't be afraid of the LEGO® Group® ?
    We say LEGO® sets because we only exhibit LEGOGroup® brick products. No, we are not afraid of the LEGO Group or its lawyers as we abide by the LEGOGroup's® "Fair Play Rules" and generally act with respect and appreciation for others.
  • Are all exhibits well documented and labeled?
    There is minimal information about the exhibits and a QR code on the display cases. The QR code can be scanned with a smartphone and provides detailed information and links to your device via our in-house, free Wi-Fi. Note: the documentation is not quite finished yet, in some cases the information is not yet complete.
  • Can I bring my dog ?
    No.
    Animals brought along are not allowed on our property.

    Yes.
    There is a men's and a women's toilet.
  • Can people with reduced mobility enter the museum ?
    Yes.
    However, we are still working on solutions for some areas - please call us so that we can discuss this in detail.
    Note: there are some ramps in the museum whose inclination is greater than is generally intended. In any case, we are at your disposal to support you!
  • Who owns the pinball machines and the LEGO® sets ?
    99% of the exhibited items are from the private collection of Daniel Schmatz. The remaining objects as well as the furnishings of the museum are the property of "alles Eitle by Daniel Schmatz". The museum is run by the company in order to create the necessary legal certainty.
