The Roller Museum is integrated in the Olympic Museum of Nanjing. After a first tour in the Olympics area, a whole 200 m2 section is dedicated to skating.
The section is divided into parts for each discipline with photos and videos, old and new equipment, but also FIRS medals of previous editions of world championships.
The visitor is invited to interact through virtual reality helmets, and various balance games, on foot or skateboard. All in all, a great showcase for skating.
