Lots of fun and odd things at this little museum covering the history of roller skating. I went with a large group and it seemed everyone found something to interest them in the place.

Small fun museum. We loved all the costumes and interactive displays. Makes you want to immediately go to the roller derby or roller rink for some fun.

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
