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 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!

If you're looking for LCD interactive displays, this is not the place for you. But if you like learning about something you had little too no knowledge of then, you can't miss this place. I could not believe how much I didn't know about roller skating. The museum is inside the offices for the Roller Skating assoc, so at first... More

We didn't know too much about roller skating until going through this museum. It's very interesting and the displays are well done. Lots of neat stuff going back to the 1800's! "Rinking" was a pretty big social event back then! You can go through it pretty quick. The other reviews are correct that it is kind of unusual going through... More
