Used a skateboard in my youth (long time ago). It was interesting to see the evolution from what I used to the present. The museum is free, but they do welcome donations. It was worth making a donation.

We enjoyed this very small museum (1 room). Free entrance, based on donation. Many old skates and scooters, movies and documentaires. A good moment.
