It's a small place but rich in history of the surrounding area. The museum is right at the end of the boardwalk....

The museum is filled with Ocean City, Maryland artifacts and is also reminiscent of days gone by in Ocean City.

The Life Saving Station Museum is definetly worth the stop. The entrance fee is only a few dollars and you get a discount if you have a AAA card. Very interesting to see the history of Ocean City.

This is a very interesting and historical museum in a historic life saving station. Very interesting place for a few bucks. They have a bookstore which is definitely worth a visit, as well.

Wonderful place to spend a few hours. Very affordable fee. The history is amazing. If you like to learn about an areas history this is the place! I visit each time we go to OC, (sometimes twice a year) and always see and learn something new. My husband likes it too, but I could spend hours in there!

My littler ones got board pretty quickly, but my thirteen year-old enjoyed the museum. Some intersting pieces of history to look at and touch and some nice articles that explain the history and evolution of the local live saving groups. The entry fee is nominal.
