For $5 entrance fee you can see 2 floors worth of skating memorabilia including many videos selectively located thourought. We spent 50 minutes only because we got there 50 minutes before it closed. We probably would have spent another 30 minutes or so if we had the time. I especially enjoyed the hisory of Axel Paulsen and Mr. Salchow along with the evolution of the skate blades. They had examples of bones used for blades! There were several outfits worn by champions there and a canvas painting that Blumberg and Seiberg did by putting paint on ice and skating through it. You are allowed to take pictures. The gift shop is very small but you can buy post cards of many of the things in the museum. There is a special section for synchronized competition. The museum is something that is probably enjoyed more by those of us that are a little more up in years to remember its history:) The staff are very helpful and will give you free issues of "Skating" magazine if you don't get it already. It was a little difficult for us to find, even with our GPS.
