Nice little museum with displays of actual things pertaining to Ocean City. Worth taking a moment to read and look at what is on display. Amazing what is found right off the coast in Maryland.

A nice way to learn about the history of Ocean City! The photos and artifacts are certainly a trip back in time. The gift shop is tiny but has a good selection of items.

Good historical information. Few exhibits. The kids will like the aquariums with the horseshoe crab and the sea horses.

Nice little museum featuring local history about beach crews, life guards over the years. Some odd life saving equipment from long a go. Great exhibit showing different sands from all over the world, who knew there were some many different textures and colors.

Inexpensive and informative. You can see the entire museum in 15-30 minutes. We'll worth $1.50 with AAA card.
