The museum contains the largest collection of historical roller skates, dating to 1819, in the world. It also contains patents, medals, trophies, photographs, artworks, films and videotapes, costumes, library and archival materials, and roller skating memorabilia. The museum holds approximately 1,500 volumes of roller skating books and periodicals, including over 125 titles (American and foreign) in its periodical collection. The archives also includes over 8,000 photographs; personal papers of individuals prominent in roller skating from 1800 to the present; programs and archival material for local, regional, national, and international roller skating competitions; and miscellaneous articles and images related to roller skating.

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.

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.
