I remember nailing a hammered down metal skate to a 2 foot piece of wood and making a skateboard. The evidence is in this fun museum! Some of the original boards, the banana board, are in here. Very fun to visit if you grew up in the 60's

So, I'm getting to that age where a lot of the stuff I liked as a teenager is ending up in museums. While that may sound depressing, the awesomeness of this place softened the blow. I absolutely loved this place. It had many of decks I owned in my youth, pictures of my heros, and 2 of the nicest people... More

Very worthwhile stopping in when you are meandering along Embarcadero Street. A very impressive collection. No entrance fee, but donations welcome.

I loved this place and all the vintage skateboards on display. I have been skating since the late 60s and consider them art and the people who rode them were heroes of my youth. This place has an awesome display of skateboards and other mementos. We were on a road trip up coast route 1 and had to make this... More

Go visit this little gem in Morro Bay and give a few bucks (or buy a t-shirt) to help keep it open. There is some great history and really neat skateboards on display.
