About The Museum
Established in 1980, the National Museum of Roller Skating provides the public with an experience to reflect on and understand the sport of roller skating and its history. With exhibits containing artifacts dating back to the early 19th century, the museum presents roller skating throughout the years.
The museum's grand opening to the public was on April 13th, 1982.
The Museum houses the largest collection of roller skating items in the world and also houses the National Roller Skating Archives which contains publications and information on the people, objects, and events connected to roller skating's history.
The building is shared with USA Roller Sports, the national governing body of roller sports. The historical building was formerly used by Lincoln Telegram and Telegraph Company as a utility warehouse.
