Neat little place :)

This is a cool place to learn about the history of the roller skate. It is a small place, located inside some offices for the USA Rollerskating association. Good display!

There is so much at this small museum it boggles the mind. My friend and I stopped on a lark thinking we would be in and out in a few minutes; an hour and a half later we were leaving having thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Everything from the history of roller skating and manufacturing to some interesting skates created for fun.... More

As many have said before, this truly is a hidden gem. My party had no idea of the hours, but it seems to operate on normal business hours which means it closes at 5pm. We showed up 10 minutes before closing, and the museum guy said he was working late so we could stick around! It's free (they take donations),... More

This is one of those hidden gems. The history of roller skates and roller skating is presented in a visually pleasing chronology. If you gals are having trouble getting hubby to go in, tell him there is photo of Cher in a see-through blouse roller skating. There is a donation jar, but no push to contribute. Displays range from how... More

This is a terrific little museum! You will be able to see some amazing old roller skates, even motorized! It's a walk down memory lane. The history of the sport right up to USA Roller Sports National Championships! Loved it!

We're biased since we were in town for the national roller skating championships, but this was a fun little museum to visit and definitely worth the time to stop and check it out.

Even though the museum is fairly small they have a tremendous amount of history and items to share and bring back memories.

This museum is inside the office facilities of the US Association of Roller Skating. Thy have some really cool skates I have never seen before, and all kinds of displays on different types of skating. I never knew there was a roller skating soccer league! Best of all, it's donation driven, so if you go and have a good time,... More

This is an amazing place for those of us that adore skating, and have grown up in roller sports. This really holds the artifacts of all of those that came before us in each discipline, and is a must visit attraction of Lincoln, NE!
