My 12 year old grandson wanted to go. It was a lesson in the history of skateboards and skateboard development. It also had the world's largest skateboard which holds the world record for the number of people on one skateboard.. 27? I think.

It doesn't get much more California than this. This skateboard museum is the cherry on top of the banana split that is Morro Bay, a sleepy beach town that looks like nothing's changed much during the last 60 plus years. With a Woody parked further down on the Embarcadero, surfers riding by on bicycles with their surfboards under their arms,... More

The Morro Bay Skateboard Museum is completely unique. It's a museum rather than a skate shop. There are decades of American sporting history in there. Jack has skated across the US three times and has another one planned. He is a wealth of knowlege, experience, and just positive energy. The crew is one of the most down to earth and... More

It's a small place, so not the Natural History Museum, but its full of really cool skateboard memorabilia & history. The guy who runs it is super nice & great to chat with also and knows the area so well too if you have any questions.

Worth a look if you are in the area and like skateboards! Don't go out of your way though as just a wee place.

The Skateboard Museum is on the Embarcadero in Morro Bay and well worth a stop in. There is no admission but they do accept donations. The museum is like a walk through skateboard history and has a wonderful display of hundreds of boards over the decades with memorabilia and photos. They also have a great gift shop. I bought a...

I'm not a skateboarder but you don't have to be yo love this gem of a place. You'll be knocked out by the zest for life which oozes out of the place. Thanks Jack for a truly memorable holiday experience.
