  • Ronda gave us a quick tour of the museum, and was so enthusiastic and well informed. Very interesting and great display of many rollerskates throughout history. I'm going home and checking out a rink in my area. I would love to see a competition.
  • For those who read my reviews you know that I have a passion to locate and report on odd little museums. Well this sure qualifies it's not large but it is comprehensive about the history of skates and skating. Imagine being able two sea skates from 1814. Well I didn't even know they were skating in 1814 and today that's over 200 years old. wow! now the rest of the museum has various skates, over time, motorized skates, four wheel skates, inline skates, and skates that defy description as people just wanted to have a good time and go skating. I would think you needed skating because not everybody had ice year-round to do ice skating. But what do I know! Anyway, there skate competitions around the country, there were the days of the roller rinks, and all the wonderful things of the past, there were these designs that increase safety and speed there's just a whole lot to see here, if you stop and read, and a great calliope box that you need quarters for. So bring some quarters and come and enjoy the skating Museum. I thought it was wonderful.
  • The lady even gave us a ton of info before we started.
  • An interesting place about a niche subject. It's free so check it out!
  • i loved it so much and im not even a roller skater.
