Great place to go, to get out of the sun

As you walk the boardwalk and you need to cool off, stop in at this little museum. It only cost $3.00 but if you check in the OCMD Coupon book, you will get in for $2.00. Great... read more

Great place to take the family if you are interested in learning about Ocean City's history. Life sizes rescue boats and upstairs has a lot of history of the boardwalk.

This is a terrific experience for all ages. It provides a glimpse of what Ocean City was before it was a strip of never-ending T-shirt shops and attractions: a city on the sand, where people lived - and died- by the Ocean's rules. The saying of those who manned the lifeboats was: "You have to go out, but you don't... More

Our family has come to OC, MD during the summer for at least 10 years. From the time we stumbled upon this place when kids were 7 or 8, until now 18 yrs old, its been a favorite little oasis; a break from the beach, or the noise of the boardwalk. We dont go in every year, but when we... More

Great exhibition of artifacts and historical perspective of the brave men and women who risked their lives to keep others safe and to rescue those who may have otherwise perished. Great use of videos and slide shows that document life saving efforts through the years. Lots of free literature and a good selection of books and other memorabilia

we visited OC and it was so hot we found this little museum at the beginning of the boardwalk. We went inside and delightful people told us about the place so we stayed and visited. Very interesting place.
