Heard about this place from friends and since I grew up in Southern California and skateboards, had to go. It was definitely worth it. More stuff to see and know about skateboards than you probably would ever imagine. Worlds biggest skateboard.......wonder how many people they could put on it? All kinds, sizes and wheels. Very cool place to look at... More

You can't help but like this place with all your childhood memories of skate boards. From the early days till now it's a great collection to see. Did not realize at the time we was actually land surfing.

If you were a skater in the 1980's as I was it brought back some great memories. Great place and nice guy who runs/owns it.

Nestled in the Embarcadero at Morro Bay is a rare find!! No one would ever expect world second biggest skateboard to be found here!! There is a wide array of skateboards even one for snow. Definitely a do not miss type place,

On our most recent trip we bought a skateboard to support the Morro Bay Skateboard Museum for our 4 year old daughter. She absolutely loves it (hot pink and purple light up wheels). The Owner is super nice and was awesome to talk to. We loved looking at all the history. This is a must visit shop if you've ever... More

Ducked in to this fun and colorful museum to take photos for our skateboarding grandsons. Many vintage boards displayed on the walls to show the early days of the sport. We enjoyed our time there. If you are into this, you could spend quite awhile here, but we were satisfied with our 20 minute stop. The proprietor is a boarder... More

We LOVE this museum and visit it frequently! The curator, Jack, is a great guy and very knowledgeable. If you like skating, this is a must see! Not many museums like this around.. So take advantage of it and play this place a visit. (And donate while you're there to help keep it running, rent in Morro Bay isn't cheap!)

If you or your kid skateboards, don't miss this place. It has a HUGE skateboard, and some of the very first skateboards ever made. If you are old enough, you will remember making similar ones when you were a kid. Our kids loved it.

Spent about an hour visiting the museum and talking with the owner. His collection is superb with my interest being on the 70"s and 80s' and specifically Kryptonics. We discussed his upcoming book highlighting the origins of the company and how their wheel line was born. It was a fun visit
