We went because we needed to see Isaiah's coach in the Hall of Frame. What we got was a great attentive staff willing to tell the history of roller skating! We had a wonderful time because of the staff. Well worth the trip

We loved the museum! It is small but packs a punch. The staff member that greeted us was super knowledgeable and friendly. It was educational and entertaining. Loved the cowboy boot roller skates the best!

Small fun museum. We loved all the costumes and interactive displays. Makes you want to immediately go to the roller derby or roller rink for some fun.
