The National Museum of Roller Skating holds the largest, most varied, and unique collection of antique roller skates in the world. Included in its collection is the James L. Plimpton family collection (considered the father of modern roller skating), patent models of early skates of American manufacturers, skates of international origin, competitive and vaudeville costumes, memorabilia of roller skating rinks, in-line roller skates dating from 1819 to present, and various manufacturing innovations and experiments. The museum archives contain an extensive collection of publications, photographs and documents covering over two centuries of roller skating history.

At the museum, we collect, preserve, and display the history of roller skating. By sponsoring and promoting education and informative exhibits, we hope to bring together everyone associated with roller skating, whether it be through sports, business, or recreation.

Roller skating is the shared experience of many through recreation, sport, and business. The National Museum of Roller Skating is committed to enriching people's lives by increasing their understanding and enjoyment of roller skating's past.
