This past weekend I had the opportunity to visit the Memory Lane Bowling Museum near Omaha, Nebraska. Perhaps the largest and most impressive PRIVATE collection of bowling history and memorabilia . . . right up there with the Int'l Bowling Hall of Fame & Museum at the International Bowling Campus in Arlington, Texas.

It is open to the public at no charge, but by appointment only. For anyone interested in touring, call Ted Baer at 402-306-2602.

I'll post just a small sample of the amazing pieces on display on Saturday.


Broad view of the museum's collection


Collection of honor score awards over the years


A small portion of the items donated by the Dick Weber Family, after his death


Perhaps one of my favorite pieces . . . one of a kind hand made bowling bag & shoe caddie


Yes, those are very old wooden bowling balls on the rack on the top of the shelving
