Even if you don't skateboard it is awesome, if you do, it is your heritage! The memories this place stimulates are really quite beautiful.

What a sweet trip down memory lane, along with plenty of the modern stuff too! this place will blow your mind, and you might even find some free stuff hidden there too! check their facebook page, the curator is always hiding free stuff amongst the shelves and you might walk out with some swag.

Liked: I haven't seen any other skateboard museums. Disliked: When I saw the older skateboards my knees and palms began to hurt.

It was a lot of fun looking at the different skateboards. We liked all the different boards in there from real old to new. It was fun looking through them and finding what we had as kids!

The entire history of skateboarding! I was so surprised to find this organized, well-represented museum. It's a must-see while visiting Morro Bay.

Saw a board from the '50's like the ones my brother made from destroyed adjustable roller skates, a few nails, and a piece of wood. Priceless memory!

Lots of pictures and boards but the guy at the counter really made the visit so cool. Friendly, knowledgeable and really seemed to care what about our childhood skating stories. Will definitely go back the next time we are up there!

If you have anyone in the family or in your party who likes skateboarding, it'll be a lot of fun for them! They have a huge collection of old skateboards of different designs and ages. They also give you a little of the history of the skateboard which even I (a non-skateboarder) found fascinating. They ask for donations if you... More

You can see the progression of Skateboarding all right here in this tiny museum... and it's free! From the old wooden decks with metal skate wheels that we used to build in our garages to today's high speed downhill technology. If you skate it's a must stop in Morro Bay.

A variety of skateboards from the start of the sport to present day. Friendly owner. It brought back memories of when my sister and I made our first board in the late 50's out of a wooden swing set seat and roller skates. The owner had never heard of that combo!
