As an avid skater, I really was excited to see this museum. While it's small and inside an office building, it's still awesome to see skating artifacts, posters, outfits, skate cases, stoppers, and so much more. My husband and I met at our local skating...More

Very impressive. Skating from the very beginning up to the present. We were very surprised at the amount of information available. The exhibits were very well maintained. Well worth the visit.

Hey, let's put up a fun little museum but make sure it is closed on the weekends when people have time to see it. Was very much looking forward to seeing this. Don't waste your gas. Disappointing.

Even if you've only donned a pair of roller blades in your teen years, a visit to this museum if you are ever close to the area is a fun side trip. Give yourself about an hour. They are non-profit, so It's free but they...More
