I'm not a history buff but, with a $3.00 admission fee and an online coupon of buy one get one free admission, I had to go! I was really impressed with this museum! Out of all of the years I visited OC, I never even knew it was there at the inlet (beginning of the boardwalk), until I was searching... More

It is a small quaint town museum. If you want to learn more about the history of OC life guards and the history of OC, this is the place to go and take a short moment to see.

We arrived in time to see a sea creature demonstration/feeding, which was informative and fun. It was neat to read about some of the live-saving stories and see exhibits. Great price.

Very nice museum with a mix of exhibits about the life saving station and Ocean City history in general. Especially liked the "Laughing Sal" exhibit. Well worth it.

Went with 3 generations. All were happy. Spend 30 minutes and a couple dollars to see aquariums and history of the area. They have a nice program for kids.

We have been to this place several times and for the cost it is a great way to spend an hour or two. They give kids a clip board and a sheet of questions that they can hand in for a small prize on the way out which really helps keep them entertained and encourages the adults to help and... More

It was interesting for adults to a degree, but not as exciting as many other things in Ocean City. My kids did the scavenger hunt, which helped keep their interest a bit longer. The staff was nice and it's a quiet place, one of the few, on the boardwalk.

Very little of Old Ocean City remains, but the Ocean City Life-Saving Station is an artifact from the early days. Located at the top of the boardwalk, it is a nicely restored facility with exhibits about the history of OC. It is a charming little piece of authenticity amongst the miles of kitch.
