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 you may feel like you're intruding. But the museum is in the back. No frills here. Just a lot of memorabilia and printed placards of stories of roller skating's golden past. We really enjoyed it. We were there about just over an hour. Oh and it's free

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 the work spaces but it was pretty quiet when we were there. This is the kind of place you can tell your friends about and they won't have any idea it existed! Free, just donations accepted.

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.
