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

My girls were there for the national rollerskaterskating championship. So this was a very interesting treat. You find out about how skating has progressed through the years and how skates have changed. Good fun. would definetly recommend this stop.

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

It's a small museum and it's FREE. There's not a whole lot there and we did not spend much time there since small children are not apt to read a lot, looking at exhibits. What I enjoyed the most was the video they had going in the museum. It was pieces of various programs. Really fun to watch.

The museum is in the building with the offices of the roller skating governing body so it felt a little like you were in somebody's workspace. There were a lot of interesting facts and displays about roller skating and it was free!

Had no idea that there COULD be so many displays about roller skating. BTW: do not ask them about Roller Derby, that is a bad word to them.
