A great small museum that is often overlooked - very cool to see the history of the town. Staff are great and very helpful.

It's a small, quaint museum to learn about the history of not only the life-saving station, but the history of Ocean City, as well.

A nice museum that gives a wonderful overview of Ocean City, Maryland. Great displays and photographs and much to see. My daughter and I try to visit every summer and it is always fun with something new to learn about Ocean City. Great gift shop too!

This museum was small but extremely informative. They had a questionnaire for children to fill out. It is two floors. It has a small fee. But it is worth it. The museum is easy to get and parking is right next door. The museum is at the end of the boardwalk.

This was a wonderful museum and a don't miss for anyone visiting Ocean City for the first time. There are exhibits about the history of the amusement park along with game prizes and photos and artifacts from the early park in the 1920s. There is a room filled with items found from shipwrecks. Of course the focus is on early... More

Must see each year. Love the sand collection from around the world. Make sure to listen for the ghosts.....we didn't see them, but picked up some EMF. Only $30.00 per year to be a member-it helps support the Museum-and there is always a clean bathroom.

this is one of the best museums I have ever visited, it is small and local and has tidbits of all sorts of Ocean City life! We try to stop in every time we visit. An amazing display of the Breeches Buoy recently was fascinating!!!
