  • 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.
  • This is so hokey, but it's hilarious. It's free and it's amazing. How can a guy complain when it's free. I think every visitor to Lincoln should enjoy this awesomeness.
  • While the museum is a little small, it contains a wide variety of roller skates and information about the skates, history, sports, and other tid bits. Museum staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Bring a quarter or two for their old style music box.
  • If you go, you will learn a lot about the history of roller skates and skating. I was in the Roller Derby in 1960's and have donated my skates to the museum. I think it is great to have one place dedictated to roller skating of all kinds, Juanell (Willie Wallace) Largent
