Ocean City History

Very cool stop for a little Ocean City history. It's a nice break from all the madness on the boardwalk.

Loved seeing the history of OC, particularly seeing "Laughing Sal" in the flesh. Learned about how they rescued folks from ships.

We had a nice time here. There is a lot of history and the person working their was very nice and informative. There was a scavenger hunt for the grandkids that made it entertaining for them. If you are at the inlet, I suggest taking an hour and going through this nice exhibit. It is only $3.00 for an adult... More

It was an interesting attraction. Good amount to see and some great artifacts. Worth the visit, but you have to love seaside history.

Love the history of how the Coast Guard began. Wish the brochure had more information. Would be nice if the 2nd floor had better access.

My son (almost 3) loves sharks so the big one out front and the first room with small aquariums and shark teeth got his attention. He really enjoyed going room to room to find Sherlock the Shark (a game they do for a prize at the end) and the playroom was his favorite. it is small, but they have stuff... More

We finally made it in and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Same sentiments as other TA Reviewers...great bargain for $3/pers. We didn't use coupons. Very friendly staff. We'll bring out of town friends here in the future for sure!

It was awe inspiring to read their stories, and terrifying to see the rescue vessels used back then. Upstairs, there are pieces of Ocean City history (old handmade surf boards, old boardwalk prizes and games, and... More
