Very interesting and free. If you are interested in the history of the skateboard movement you will enjoy the displays and photos. Fun to take the kids and say, "I had one like that when I was a kid."

The museum had a great collection from every era of skateboarding. It was an awesome stop on my trip up to central CA. I would recommend this to all skaters. I personally am a fan of the 70s and he had a great selection. I was lucky to meet the owner while I was there. He is an awesome guy... More

Cool museum, great knowledge and experience from the owner - and I'm not even a skater! Bought a sweatshirt too as very cool.

Small but interesting Skateboard Museum. Interesting construction and materials dating back to the 1920`s. We remember skating with clay wheels and we're so excited to get urethane wheels. So much quieter! An interesting little place to see even if you weren't a tomboy :-)

We were visiting Morro Bay and were walking down the street when we walked by the museum. It was a great find. I wish I had more time to really look at everything. I took a lot of pics and hope to return in the future. My friend ended up visiting there the very next week and liked it as... More

Cute little place. Brought up a lot of "I remember when's" from both of us. Would have been nice if lady behind counter knew more about the skateboards on sale there. When a cut kid asked which of two went faster she said she just rings stuff up and doesn't know anything about them.

Great collection of artifacts, the giant skateboard is a must see. It's a good visit, even for the grown ups.

My boys loved the museum, and spent about twenty minutes going through it all. The place was very close to where the sub sea tours depart. Public bathrooms are close by. We purchased a T-shirt to help support the museum. Kudos to the owner; what a great idea!
