In 1971, Gauke and Gretha Bootsma started a traditional Hindeloopen painting business. When their private collection of old skates became too big for them to handle at home, they founded the Frisian Ice Skating Museum to merge their two passions. Since then, the museum has grown and is now home to the largest collection of ice skates in the world, alongside special exhibitions, dioramas, artworks, and archival material that tell the rich history of the Dutch connection to ice skating.
