This is definitely not a 5 star place for kids. Maybe for adults. The place was very nice and some good exhibits. I would do more of a 3.5 but I went with the 3. It was quick and my 4 year old got bored quickly but they do try to add in some fun things while the adults learn.... More

Loved the little life saving museum. The staff was very friendly and helpful-answered any questions we had. Learned interesting facts about the board walk and Ocean city's past life saving rescues. Laughing sal was very cool. Well taken care of and inexpensive 3$ for two people with a coupon.

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.
