This is one of the coolest places to visit in Morro Bay in my opinion. The owner is an old skateboarder like myself and he is very knowledgable and the boards bring back lots of great memories for me. Definitely worth a visit and buy a shirt to help support this great little museum.

We stumbled on this little gem purely by accident. We'd stopped off at Morro to look at the famous rock, use the conveniences, and have a quick drink etc. We strolled along the street for a leg stretch and there it was. It wasn't mentioned in our guide book at all which is a bit slack of Lonely Planet! We... More

Throw a couple bucks into the donation box and spend 15 minutes walking around. The man at the desk on the day of our visit was VERY enthusiastic and interesting. A small but quirky mini "museum" that brought back some memories

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!)
